Prize Winner

Ginger Medrano (USA)

“I decided to do two words for this art dare slimy and ‘patines’ which is skates in Spanish. For the ‘patines’ one I tried to keep it simple and give it a bright and happy mood.

I originally only planned on doing one word for the art dare but I liked my idea for the slimy one so just decided to do it for fun.”

Ginger Medrano

Honorable Mention

Marisa Murtinha (Portugal)

“I decided to dive head first into my first art dare. After a trip to Lisbon this month, I was inspired to do something related to my country. I took inspiration from Portuguese TILES for the colours and design.

I must say that colouring each of the 40 individual little squares was an exercise in patience! In the end, I believe the effect I had in mind was achieved and I’m pretty happy with it!
