Thank you to all the kids that submitted some artwork for our "Incredible Creatures" bonus Challenge!
All I can say is WOW!!!
So much creativity! So much talent! So many wonderful pieces of work!
To all the kids that entered - well done! I'm very proud of you and I hope you've been encouraged by the 'likes' and comments that you have received. When time and family allows, make sure you keep posting some of your work as part of our regular weekly challenge.

To celebrate the launch of Challenge member Matt Glover's new book, he is running a bonus challenge for kids.

Challenge member Matt Glover - Bonus Challenge Giveaway for kids

One of the joys of my work as a cartoonist and illustrator is visiting schools and organizations around Australia, delivery cartoon incursions and my Creativity and Wellbeing programs.

The Shapes, Lines and Dots series brings together in book form much of what I do in my visits, combining cartoon drawing with mindfulness exercise. It’s fun and it’s good for you!

The 52-week Illustration challenge has been instrumental in seeing the Shapes, Lines and Dots project becoming a reality. No only has my own drawing style developed significantly, but it introduced me to the wonderfully talented Cara King who made the layout and covers zing!
Volume 1, Shapes, Lines and Dots

Volume 1, Shapes, Lines and Dots: Cartooning, Creativity and Wellbeing for Kids, was released in October of 2016.

Volume 2, Shapes, Lines and Dots

Volume 2, Shapes, Lines and Dots: Dragons Dinosaurs and Other Incredible Creatures  is due for release on March 20th.

To celebrate, we are running a BONUS CHALLENGE for kids only.

If you’re under the age of sixteen, you’re invited to contribute an illustration for the theme Incredible Creatures.

Simply post the entry illustration to the Challenge wall with the following:

Bonus Challenge: Incredible Creatures
name and age of child
hashtag #ShapeLinesDots

There are two age categories:
1. Ages 0 – 10
2. Aged 11 – 16

The entry deemed most creative in each category by my family will receive a copy of Volume 1 AND Volume 2 of Shapes, Lines and Dots.

A runner up in each category will receive a copy of the newly released Volume 2.

The bonus challenge will end midnight  Monday 20th March (Melbourne time).

Winners will be announced 22 March.

Kids – start your drawing! We can’t wait to see your Incredible Creatures!

  1. How exciting! And congratulations!
    Is this Australia only, or worldwide? I have some English children who might be interested in taking part.
