Spring has sprung, which means its time for another monthly drawing competition!
This time we’re looking for images inspired by February. And here’s the best bit…
At the end of the year, we’re planning to create a 2017 calendar full of your images! The winning entry for each month will be featured in the calendar. We think it’s an opportunity not to be missed. PLUS…
We’re giving away a prize to each winner. This month there’s a Maglus Mini up for grabs.

That photo was taken by the canal near our office in Dublin by the way!
All you need to do is send us a drawing with the theme – ‘FEBRUARY’.
All we ask is that the artwork is created using the Maglus Stylus.
You spoke, we listened! Maglus users were keen to learn more about the Brush Tip and what exactly it can do. The post below was originally shared when the Tip launched. But it was so good, we thought we’d share it again! PLUS…Read to the end to get a FREE Brush Tip!
How many pictures could you create in a day?
We sat artist and animator Fergal Brennan down, equipped with nothing more than a brush-tipped Maglus stylus and an iPad (using Procreate app), in front of the ever changing light outside his window. His singular goal was to complete 5 minute sketches from 7am to 7pm.
How did he get on? Wonderfully! He managed to produce 65 very beautiful sketches. We were so impressed, that we convinced him to composite them into a 30 second animation, complete with soundscape. The result can be seen below, highly evocative and available to be enjoyed by anyone who would like a 30 second stroll down Sandymount Strand in Dublin, Ireland.
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.
