Artwork Contest! - Win a $25 Barnes & Noble card and a personalized, signed-copy of Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus! Draw, sketch, color, pastel, paint or even sculpt your favorite character from Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus. Use your imagination and artistic talents to show me what you think Squirt looks like. Or a viscious giant tardigrade. Or suspicious yet loyal Cheeto. Or maybe even Olivia's younger brother Gnat. It is up to you!
Once your artwork is complete, you can scan it or take a good picture of it, then send it to me at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Or, if you are unable to send it in email, let me know and I will send you my address so you can mail it to me.
Make sure I have your first name, your age, and an email address to contact you. Don't forget to put the name of the character on it too!
Deadline is July 15, 2012
On July 15th, I will select the pictures that best represent the characters that I saw in my mind when I wrote the book. I am looking for the artwork that best captures the spirit of the character.
I will then post the pictures on this page for readers to vote for their favorite. On August 1, 2012, the winner will receive a $25 Barnes & Noble giftcard and a personalized, signed copy of Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus.
All contest entrants must agree to allow me to post their artwork on this website. I will never use any last names, just your first name and age.
If you have any questions, please email me and ask.
