Epic (Artistic) Contest!

Recently, I told you guys I'd be holding a contest. Well, it's here.

This isn't a book contest. This is an artistic contest. Naturally, writers see things differently, and we like artsy stuff. Personally, I loved these things when I was a kid. I don't know if any of you have ever tried the hobbies listed below, but they're fun. Could be a fresh start to something new.


There will be a first, second and third place winner. The prizes are as follows:

  • FIRST PLACE WINNER will receive a beginner's guide to painting with watercolors. Not only that, but they'll receive a set of brushes and paints, and a watercolor notebook.

  • SECOND PLACE WINNER will receive a beginner's guide to pencil drawing. Plus! You get a drawing and sketching pencil set in a black, zippered carrying case, and a sketchbook.

  • THIRD PLACE WINNER will receive an illuminated lettering kit (aka calligraphy). This kit includes a detailed history on where and how decorative calligraphy originated. Also, a calligraphy mini pen kit, and a calligraphy writing pad.
All three winners will receive these journals (one for each):

Contest begins now and will end on May 1st. I've made it easy by filling out the form below.

+10 points will be awarded to those who post a blog about the contest.
+1 point for every time you Tweet about this contest.

At the end of the contest, I will tally the top three people with the highest scores. Don't forget to stop by and fill out the form each time you Tweet. ;)

Contest is international.

Good luck! :D

ETA: The language got cut off below for the "Link" box, but please include your name. Thanks!
