Updates: Nominations Closed and Draft reviewing

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 5, 2013, 6:44 PM

June 6th Final group of artists have been confirmed! Thank you for accepting our invitations.

So that closes our artist recruitment. Please continue to enter our art contest!
We are very happy and excited to have such a talented group of people to help us with this wonderful cause!

We hope that none of the artists end up dropping out or adding another extension (I'm sure a lot of you are really excited for this book), so to help prevent this from happening I will be sending each artist a note/email at the end of this month to ask what your status is on the project, or you can send me your drafts on the 31st June. But if you don't want to that's fine, just please reply back with the current status of your submission. It's fine if you haven't done anything by then as the note will just act as a friendly reminder. We don't want artists dropping out because this project escaped their minds ^^; We would really love to receive a submission from every artist listed.

Also our Store Envy shop will be opened soon! You can purchase some of our goodies before the book is released (but you will get the items after the book is released). We would appreciate any donation to help bring this book to life!


May 30th I will close off the nominations now. All invites have been sent out and just waiting for the acceptance of the remaining four spots. Accepted self-nominations have been contacted back. Thank you for all your nominations and your assistance in this process :)

I will update the journal once again to introduce the new cast once all the artists have been selected.


May 23rd We're SUPER excited to announce that the following artists will now contribute to the art book!


And from Tumblr:

Hazya  Lechuza

We are so happy to have these artist contribute to this project, what an amazing cast of artists if I do say so myself :P Please check out their galleries if you are not familiar with them yet!

Currently this gives us a total of 89 artists, so we need 10 more artists, hopefully we can fill up all spots by the end of of the month to avoid losing time for the new artists. But also with only 10 spots left I will be extra cautious with choosing the artists :)

:star::star::star: If you have any nominations please send me ( GreyRadian ) a note!:star::star::star:

PLEASE when nominating, list at least 5 artists including yourself if you wish. (and if you know any Australian artists, I would be very grateful :D )

For nominations, we prefer to invite artists who haven't been recently or currently featured in other charity artbooks within this year, to give other artists a chance.

Sorry to say that those who have sent me a self-nomination prior to this journal update, have not been accepted (unless you have received a reply from me) so please don't send me another note unless you wish to nominate a different set of artists.

And I must clarify that no-body has been 'automatically rejected' due to the number of nominations they sent in. The nominations are to help me make this process faster of finding artists


May 16th Thanks for those who sent me a note filled with amazing nominations, however I couldn't reply to everyone but please welcome our new artists:


Yes, there are 15 artists here instead of the original ten, but that's the good news! Because we really want to give you the best possible in exchange for some donations to the Red Kite charity foundation, we've decided to now gather 100 artists to contribute to this project! Which means 35 spots are left + 4 winners :D

Sincerely sorry about this mid-way decision, but I'm sure this will be the best for all of us especially since we figured our that having 100+ pages will still fit our budget. This does mean that we will be extending the deadline yet again to the 31th of August, to be fair for artists who have been invited later.

Unfortunately there is no reason to extend the contest deadline, so the deadline for the contest remains 10th July


May 12th (Re-written entry) Due to a couple of artists dropping out we had to invite new artists to fill in these spots. Please welcome our new artists:

We've decided to expand the book to 60 pages! That means we have 10 more spots open! So please send me a minimum of 5 artists you'd like to see in this book!

An update for international invited artists: more spots have been added to each colour so now there are still spots open in all categories (apart from dual-colours), so if I've previously told you that BLUE is unavailable, you can switch if you want :D

Colour listing here:…

Please continue to enter the contest as entries will be judged only on that one entry rather than your entire gallery!

Entry examples

Journal Entry: Sat May 11, 2013, 1:52 AM

Edit: Added more examples to clarify that subject matter DOES NOT have to be nature related; could be about culture, people's hobbies, lifestyle. Doesn't have to be natural landscapes!(scroll to bottom please)

We won't be strict about the colour of the characters, objects, but the overall picture must give off the impression of the colour you have chosen. In fact, we encourage you to experiment with colours, exploring the depth of toning and lighting using different kinds of colour!

Here are some examples of what kind of artworks we are looking for in terms of colour composition and quality:

Examples regarding subject matter

We'd like to emphasis that our theme doesn't necessarily have to reflect NATURE, but can also anything that exists on our Earth including CULTURE, TECHNOLOGY, HOBBIES, FESTIVALS (including christmas, birthdays, easter, valentines day etc.)

Simply a portrait of a human is fine! (but it's up to you to make it unique)
Here are some examples regarding the subject matter that is allowed, if you are not comfortable with drawing natural landscapes etc:

All of these examples (listed in the journal) are acceptable, even in terms of subject matter. Hope this is enough examples.
