The Design Competition for Hand Drawn, Digital, Photographed and Stitched illustrations.
What is illustration today? Is it pen-and-ink on paper? Vectors on pixels? A cut-paper scene captured in a photograph? A hand-stitched portrait with a touch of Photoshop? We think it’s all of the above. And now, we want to see what illustration is to you.
ENTER TODAY! Hurry – the deadline is November 1st!
