The Art of Google Doodles

Google Doodles have become an online art extravaganza. The search engine's logo commemorate holidays, artists' birthdays, and other random events that the company deems important.

The artists painting on digital canvases are producing works of art that will be viewed by millions, but disappear in just 24 hours.
