Art Jam: Surf's Up (3 DAYS LEFT)

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 1, 2014, 3:40 PM

A quick reminder that there are 3 days left until I close this art jam, so if you still want to participate, you'll have to make it snappy. :thumbsup:

Summer has arrived, so I thought it'd be a good time to kick off another art jam, this one being summer themed of course - here's the lowdown:

As with every art jam I host, there's a logo to go with it, and while it would be cool if you could use this logo in your entry, you're under no obligation to do so:

You've got until 31 July to take part - so take to those creative waves, people. :thumbsup:

That's happened to me many times. All the pieces that don't fit come together, share their experiences and have something in common.
Wed May 28, 2014, 4:56 AM
All the time.
Tue May 27, 2014, 11:20 AM
Oh definitely.
Mon May 26, 2014, 6:13 PM
Ever feel like you're in one giant puzzle and you're the piece that doesn't fit?

At least I can control my fire well, so I can hold it in when I sneeze. :XD:

*grabs a fire extinguisher and quickly puts the fire out* Dragons and dust, always a dangerous combination.
Wed Apr 16, 2014, 4:15 AM
*turns up to the place and sneezes from dust* Oh shit! I've set the chair on fire!

*helps Alex clean up the dust, and sneezes while doing so*

Hello Mark, how are things?
BluebottleFlyer Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Things are fine. Yourself?
smithandcompanytoons Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014   Digital Artist
Coo. I'm fine, just got back from the hospital about my eye. 

I hate to bother you but is it ok if I have one art trade? I need to practice more with my drawing skils.
BluebottleFlyer Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure - note me who you want me to draw.
