Wacom Bring Your Vision to Life Contest
The conflict of good vs. evil is one that's universally known. Can good exist without evil? Can evil exist without good? Are they opposites, or one in the same? Is the battle between light vs. dark, order vs. chaos, Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader, or PC vs. Mac? deviantART and Wacom invite you to get your creative juices flowing and artistically interpret your version of bringing good vs. evil to life!

DeviantART and Wacom are proud to present the Intuos4 "Bring Your Vision to Life" contest. With the theme "Good vs. Evil", the contest is open to artists of all mediums anywhere in the world. The "Bring Your Vision to Life" contest challenges

Patreon: -- (get crazy mail and arty letters delivered right to your mailbox)
Greetings Friends and Fiends!

I have a few anouncements I'd like to make about Patreon and Etsy! :woohoo:

First of all, I have uploaded the remaining works of art I did for the Monster Drawing Rally to my Etsy Page.

The Monster Drawing Rally was hosted by The Sun King Brewery in  Indianapolis, in collaboration with Newfields, the Indianapolis Museum of Art! 

They were all created with speed, to see how many could get done in an hour. (Although we could bring 5 works in - I created these the same way, so I technically made 11 works in 2 hours!) 5 sold at the event, and there are 6 left!


I have simplified my patreon to currently include a limited offering of Crazymail mystery letters and Crazypostcard rewards!
What is patreon?
Patreon is a way to support your favorite creators by pledging a monthly payment as either an exchange for an offered reward tier or as a donation. I currently offer physical rewards such as Crazymail and Postcards, but I also offer non-physical rewards in the form of sneak peeks, a first look at special offers when possible, as well as a first look at some new work and videos. I also offer a permament 10% discount code for my Etsy Shop, no matter how much you pledge. My charges happen on the first of the month and you are free to cancel anytime. If you are interested in becoming a patreon patron, click on the link below!

Hi there, I'm the person that stopped by during GenCon to talk a bit. Bummed out that I was unable to get away from my table most of the weekend to come back and buy magnets :( But it was great meeting you and I'll have to try to catch you at another con next year if I wind up working any of the same places
zyphryus Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2012
Oh cool!!! Glad you were able to stop by!!
Did you have a good GenCon?

Too bad you didn't get to come back, but busy is good?

Hope I wasn't too busy when you stopped by. It was extra busy this year so I didn't get to chat as much to some people either but, busy was definitely a good thing on my end. :)
Take care!!
