It would take me another 52 weeks to express how much this year has meant to me--in terms of creative fulfillment but also in terms of the stunning creative community we have built and thrived in. I feel so fortunate to have made the most incredible friendships and working collaborations since the Challenge began on 1 January of this year.
From superb member opportunities and collaborations (including book contracts!) to life-changing shifts and even a 2015 Exhibition!, I never, ever dreamed The Challenge would become what it has. I so look forward to doing it all again in 2015, though with a little less intensity than 2014--I have, after all, some books to illustrate! Who would have thought!?
If you're interested in joining in for 2015, you'll find the 2015 themes, chosen by members, right here.
In the meantime, here are my picks for FIREWORKS week. These are just some of the sensational artworks on the Challenge facebook group wall. Check out the rest here!
Wishing you an enchanting, creative, deeply fulfilling 2015. Thank you for coming along on this amazing ride! It would have been nothing without you.
