This week we’re exploring turning those nonsensical colloquialisms into visuals! The point of this theme is to illustrate idioms so keep text to a minimum. Also even though text is allowed, it must be hand drawn!
This Derby begins THURSDAY August 29th & ends THURSDAY September 5th at noon, CST. The three winning designs will be featured as the Daily offers Friday - Sunday. Great designs that don’t win may be included in an Editor’s Choice sale each Monday, so be sure to check back and see who makes the cut!
Please be sure to email your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you submit!
