FX Drawing Competition


It’s been a little while since my last blog, and I can’t believe that this is my first one since Christmas…I hang my head in shame.  Although, I do have a very good excuse, and that is I’ve been pretty busy working on projects, but I promise to get back on track with this and all social media doings.

I thought I’d start off with this brilliant idea by FX Magazine, the “FX drawing competition“.  I stumbled upon this last night and thought “I have to share this with you”, and I have to do it, especially as I’ve been filling-up my A3 sketchbook recently with hand-drawings, yes, I’m going back to my roots in my spare time.  Don’t worry, I’ll still be designing wallpapers, in fact, there will be a new collection this year to feature at the Independent Hotel Show in October 2015…seems so far away.

Anyway, here’s information about the competition:

“Calling all artists, designers, architects and creative’s – it’s time to close the laptop and find those pen and pencils as FX is now accepting entries for its drawing competition, run in association with acoustics specialist Ecophon.

Whether you’re a technical artist, urban sketcher or impressionistic painter, if it’s freehand then submit it! The subject matter is up to you and add colour if you want. An exhibition of the entries and winners plus a networking party awaits, with a date for this to be announced soon.

Drawings can be of anything you want and all kinds of freehand drawings are welcome – everything and anything from two-three point perspective to fine art drawings for those of you sketching for the real love of it.

Send a scan of your drawing/s in the first instance to drawing2015@fxmagazine.co.uk with DRAWING in the subject.”  by FX Magazine (words by Emily Martin)
