Paula here, that’s me in the image above with Chris’s winning entry printed on the wall of our Dublin office. Welcome to our space. Here is where the magic happens!
This competition has been lots of fun, we even got some artwork for our walls from it!
We were thrilled with the amazing response and the high standard of entries we received from our ‘Drawing Competition’. Our overall winner was Chris Davies and his excellent entry – ‘Beaky Blinder’. His ‘Beaky Blinder’ image reflects his local – Birmingham & Black Country. He turned a Wren into a character from TV show ‘Peaky Blinders’. He created the image using a Maglus on Procreate App for iPad.
We thought it was a really clever and unique idea. Well done Chris!
Helen Adams and Yvonne Foster claimed a well deserved Second and Third place.
We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our competition. It’s a pleasure to look at the artworks created with Maglus – our product! We always knew the Maglus community were a talented bunch but you really have outdone yourselves this time!
We wanted to round up some of the entries we’ve received so far for you to enjoy.
It turns out that Luke’s ‘bird’ drawing and our competition launch last week was a massive hit with you guys! Spurred on by the positive response we received, we have decided to extend the competition deadline. Luke has also been encouraged to keep sketching. Another of his ‘bird’ drawings is featured in this post!
To give everyone enough time to enter, we are excepting entries until Monday 26/10/2015.
Here’s a recap of the DEADLY Prizes up for grabs!
The term drawing is applied to works that vary greatly in technique, making it difficult to define. Simply put, a drawing is a graphic representation by lines, tones or colors of an object or idea.
Drawing is in effect the basis of all visual arts.
There are many different reasons why people draw – to visualise thought and work something out, to provide a pattern to follow or give instructions on how to make something, to describe or record something. However the most basic reason people draw is for the pleasure and satisfaction it gives them!
“I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing.” – Vincent van Gogh
