Google Doodles for Good

Today’s Google Doodle celebrating John Steinbeck is perfect.

I looked around for a way to buy these illustrations as prints through the Google Doodles Store on Zazzle and at the Google Store, and couldn’t find anything in either place.

I wonder why Google doesn’t sell these through a print-on-demand service and donate proceeds to a non-profit. It looks like they’re doing something similar with a Google Doodle scholarship program.

Does this already exist? And if not, what are the hurdles to getting that done?

    THESE ARE FANTASTIC. I had no idea, and now I want them all too.

    Maybe the artist retains the rights. I hope so.

  • Maggeh Says:

    That would for sure be a good reason, but I suspect they’re developed in house? In which case the artist likely wouldn’t retain rights, which seems like a fair trade for Google benefits. I wonder.

    From my Googler husband:

    I think it takes a while for anything to show up in the Google Doodle store — there’s nothing newer than 2013 at the moment. But not all Doodles are available in the store. I’m just guessing, but that could be a combination both of having the rights and expected demand for a given design. It couldn’t hurt to mention desire for a poster of particular doodle at https://www.googlestore.com/shop.axd/Contact?

  • Where can I find Biltong? Says:

    Biltong is becoming one of the famous delicacies that are known for its nutritional benefit. Biltong is very high in protein, low in carbohydrates and low in fat that makes it the best food for those who are on a diet and for active people. Since it is high in protein, it will provide the necessary amino acids needed by our body. There are no chemical preservatives, artificial coloring, monosodium glutamate, MSG and sodium nitrate because Biltong has been prepared with ingredients such as salt, sugar, vinegar, spices, coriander, and pepper. It is dried on the outside but is moist on the inside.
