JUDGING: What does it take to be an Uncommon artist? We’ll pick our favorite entries to share with customers on our Community Voting App. Our guest judges will choose a winning design from among the top vote-getting entries. We’ll announce the winner in May.
ART SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: Your art should tell a story, be intelligent, and show your creative individuality. Take a look at some of our other art for inspiration. We don’t have a set aesthetic – we want to see yours. Anything that will translate well to a print. We’re big fans of color and experimentation, so don’t be afraid to show us something new! You must provide quality digital captures of your original watercolors, acrylics, pastels, colored pencils, collages, or digital art, etc.
