Hey everyone! Its getting into the holiday season again, so its time for this year's community-wide Holiday Art Swap! :holly:

Its been an annual event on :devart: since 2006. Some of the previous years have seen several hundred artists participate, but since :devart: has been a little quieter than usual these days we need your help to make the event bigger and better than ever!

The event is fully hosted at its own group at :iconholidayartswap:

How does it work? Its easy: Participants are paired up randomly and do a gift art trade with each other. The gifts don't have to be holiday themed, you can request anything your partner is comfortable with doing. So if that's something you would be interested in taking part in, then please feel free to sign up (see link at the bottom).

Who can join in? While the event is open to any kind of illustrator, it is also open to writers, handcraft artisans, photographers, 3D artists, and others (anyone creative). It can be tricky to fulfill some wishes, but it's been really neat seeing artisans creating items like homemade scarves for their partners, photographers taking special shots for theirs, even writers creating short stories or poetry.

What is this event for? Its all in the spirit of giving to fellow artists, having fun and being sociable. Oftentimes its a great opportunity to make new friends and get to know artists and other creative people whom you might not have seen or spoken with before.

Now here's the thing: Signup is only open until December 6th, 2016


If you have any questions about the event, the event blog is also a good place to leave them for the organizers.

And if you decide to participate, we recommend joining that group or adding it to your devwatch (especially the group's journals) so that you don't miss out on any updates. The entire event will take place on the HolidayArtSwap group itself.

Me too, I thought you would literally draw only dogs on here. But, otherwise, interesting artwork is in here.
