We really enjoy being contacted by artists to suggest themes for our competitions and this time it was the turn of the French artist Mam'zelle Pastel. She suggested a necklace painting competition and included three of her designs for us to be inspired by. So much so that we thought it was a great idea for the competition and also invited her to be our guest judge. After looking through all the entries, Mam'zelle Pastel was delighted with all the beautiful achievements and the hard work of judging started.
Artist Nadja Hluchovsky contacted us with a suggestion for our face painting competition, famous painters and artists. She is often inspired by famous painters and translates this into her own face painting designs. Of course we thought that the theme was a great idea and Nadja was the perfect person to be our guest judge for this month. What we had not expected was how many famous painters and artists inspire you. We were coming across famous artists that we had not heard of before and it was interesting then to research and learn more about the painter. One thing that this competition taught us is how knowledgeable you all are about art; this really inspired us.
These are some of Nadja's ideas to inspire you.
Winners announced for the Cats and Dogs Face Painting Competition.
Our April challenge was to paint a design that was a cat or dog, easy right? Maybe not so easy after all with the broad range of cats and dogs designs that entered this competition. Once again you all prove what a colourful and creative industry we are in; we have seen fantasy cats, devilish dogs and a large assortment of cuteness. This time, the Illusion team were the judges and you would have thought after running these competitions for a few years, we were be ninja judges, but like our previous guest judges, we struggled and deliberated for some time before we narrowed our shortlist down to 10. After going back and forth, we finally made our selection. Thank you to all artists that entered this competition, it was fun seeing your entries pop into our emails. Enjoy the winners!
