being a fan of the google doodles, i just finished an illustration and submitted it to google. samuel colt‘s birthday is july 19, so what a perfect time to illustrate the colt pistol. how cool would it be if they used it? even if they don’t, it was a great illustration experiment.
the doodle team is open to user ideas; requests for doodles can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. apparently they get loads of submissions but they do look at and consider all the requests that people enter. go for it!
