Even though there’s only a weekend left to complete your entries, I thought it would be worth mentioning that Johanna Basford is sponsoring her second coloring competition! This time, the competition features artwork from her fourth coloring book, Magical Jungle. It’s a great example of the rest of the images available in Magical Jungle – this book is a fantastic addition to her collection of books. I’ll put up my review of it a bit later.
For me, I enjoy participating in coloring competitions because not only do they offer a great opportunity to showcase your work and see the work of others, but they give me a set timeline. I’m notorious for taking a bit too long noodling with my artwork, and deadlines really help me speed up my process through practice.
Additionally, it’s fascinating to see all the entries and to see fellow artists’ creativity! This is a great forum for the coloring community to come together and support one another.
If you’re pressed for time this weekend – no worries – it’s still a fantastic time to pick up the free pdf of the artwork to color at a later date!
All entries must be entered by uploading them to the coloring gallery on her website under the book title “Magical Jungle Colouring Competition”. More details are available at johannabasford.com. The deadline is Tuesday, August 23rd – winners announced Thursday, August 25th.
Now back to my own entry! Keep on coloring!
