Hey guys, I need your help. My boyfriend is participating in NaNoWriMo this month and I need something to entertain me while he's typing away. Also, I've wanted to make more illustrated art. I've been interested in using submitted words to make such art and I've been wanting to give some gifts out! This has all come together into one idea, so now I am announcing the launch of my first ArtAway Giveaway contest! At the end of the month, 25 entrants will get an original artwork mailed to them to keep forever.
To enter, you have to be over 18 and all you have to do is send me a message through Tumblr, Deviantart, or to email@example.com that has:
1) a color you want me to use.
2) a word or phrase of your choice to inspire the work.
3) your email address. (so I can send you an image of the finished work)
4) the username that you follow me with on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, or deviantART (so I can mention you when I share the work online)
5) You can also tell me if you'd like to join my mailing list, or anything else you want. I love hearing from you.
Once I get your email or message, I will start making your work! Most will be Aceo/atc size which is only 2.5x3.5 inches but I reserve the right to make it larger if the mood strikes me. In general, all works will be quick, immediate, ink drawings, colored with watercolor and gouache. I can't promise it will turn out anything like you had wanted but it will be awesome!
I will then email you a .jpg image of the finished work and post it to tumblr and such, along with the words you sent in. And this will continue until the end of November.
Finally, during the first week of December, I will randomly select 25 winners from all the completed artworks. I will notify the winners by email, asking for their mailing address so I can send their prize out. If a winner does not respond within 7 days, I will select a replacement winner.
But what if you'd love to have the artwork but didn't win or you'd like it before December? Well, I am a business woman, so make me an offer and, if it's reasonable, I'll send it to you (I take PayPal and could do it through etsy if you'd prefer). But be quick about it, I may start selling pieces or submitting them to galleries after the giveaway.
Please ask if you have any other questions, or check back here or on my tumblr [link]
Good luck and tell all your friends!
P.S. you can enter however many times you want but, if I get more entries then I can handle in November, new entries will take priority over your next entries so it may not be completed in time.
Also, I maintain the copyright of all completed artwork. Feel free to share them but please don't try and pass it off as your own work or sell prints of it, thanks!
ATTENTION: the giveaway is now closed! thanks to everyone who entered, I have three entries to finish up and then I'll be contacting the winners latter this week!
