The Paper Magician Art Contest: WINNERS!

First, let me say thank you SO MUCH to everyone who entered the contest! Those who gave permission have their art up on CharlieNHolmberg.com.

I seriously adored every single one of these entries. I am floored by how creative and talented all of you are! I've looked through the pictures so many times just staring at them and being in love.

Yes yes, I know, get on with it. Half of you probably scrolled down to the bottom of this post without even reading this lovely introduction of mine. ;)

As a disclaimer, I gave my judges full authority over who won and who didn't. I did not vote for any of the prize-winners. I also let them determine what did and did not count in the contest (since technically the rules said to draw "your favorite character," which could be construed as only one character per entry. I think most of them weren't strict.)

ANYWAY, the winners. And I'll even restate their prizes so they can see all the stuff I'm sending them. :)

Drum roll!

Thank you again to all the participants! You really made my story come alive, and that means so much to me. :)

  4. Wow! What a visual feast for the eyes that all of this artistic creativity provides. It is unbelievable what some people are capable of. I could only dream of making such wonderful art projects but alas, I do not have all of the talent that these other people have. All the best to these young artists who joined the contest going forward.
