Strokes of Genius: Fresh Perspectives:
Get your drawings published in the third edition of the highly acclaimed Best of Drawing collection. Artwork can be in any dry medium, or wet medium applied in a linear fashion that would be traditionally considered drawing. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, pencil, charcoal, conte, pen and ink, scratchboard and silverpoint. Colored pencil, pastel and even some paint mediums if used in a drawing-like manner are acceptable. Final judgment on whether a work of art fits into the “drawing” category will be determined by the editors.
