UPDATE: We need judges! Also if you still want to participate, please submit all work asap! ^.^ Because there's not a whole lot of submissions, I'm once again pushing the deadline back. If you want to be a judge, or contribute any sort of prizes, please comment below or message me.


Draw an object that, for you, represents this season or a holiday in winter you celebrate. This can be a scene, memory, or something as simple as a teacup or origami crane.

Past works allowed.
All artwork must be in or include ink.
No digital manipulation that alters the image enough to be considered of the digital medium.
Should be a member of the group to participate so it shows up in the folder, but anyone is welcome to join.

Are pen and ink wash pieces accepted?

Meh! I was mistaken, I tried to become a "contributor" not a "member" Stare. Sorry. I'll make the request correctly.

Hi there. I have a multimedia piece that uses gel pen and markers, but also watercolor and acrylic. Would that be allowed in the group?
