Digital drawing is amazing, but you can’t do it efficiently without a graphics tablet. The smallest ones are not expensive, but no cheap is cheap enough when you don’t have your own money, and your parents don’t take your passion for drawing seriously. They may not understand that this “toy” can affect all your future, transforming your hobby into a profession. I can say for sure my small Wacom Bamboo changed my life in ways I couldn’t even imagine when I first bought it. I think many of you have the same potential, but it will never have a chance to reveal itself without proper tools.

It’s the season of giving, so for the fourth year in a row I’m going to sponsor a graphics tablet for a young artist in need. The rules are simple:

  • fill an A4 page (or similar size) with traditional sketches (any topic you like)—feel free to use a pencil, ballpoint pen, ink liners, etc
  • send a scan/photo of the page to my email: with a subject “contest submission 2020
  • contest ends on Dec 11, 11PM CET
  • I’ll contact the winner on Dec 13, and will send the tablet as soon as I get their address!

What can you win? It’s going to be a Huion tablet, but the exact model is to be established once I learn where you’re from and how much the shipping is going to cost me.

Please don’t spend too much time on your submission—I’m going to judge your basic sketching skills, not your shading, details, or creativity. Also, please share the information about the contest with your friends and other people who you think may be interested!
