I'm diving into my MFA degree in about a week. I'm going to need lots of creative ideas. I'm also working to beef up my mailing list. I periodically send out updates on work that I've generated. No spam... and generally about one every other month. So- I'm running another contest.
Here's what you'll need to do...
1) Find an online image of a cool animal, location, Ent, or something awesome, and post the image- or a link. You can respond here or on my Facebook page. I'll choose the one I like best and render it in Raku.
2) Register for the Kohaku River mailing list
My designs tend to be simplified, somewhat abstract, but generally representative of some sort of marine, wildlife, coastal, or mythological imagery. I received some great suggestions last time. As you can see above and below, weedy sea dragons have become a mainstay. I'll hope for something equally cool this time!
