A Continuous Line Challenge - !!.IT'S OVER.!!

After coming off of the Minimalism Challenge I was thinking about some different art styles and had a thought.



^Use This Logo on your submission presentation.^


--


A Design Challenge focused around a continuous Line Drawing


Kind of like a blind contour drawing but with more control and you can look at the drawing when you need to.


Deadline - September 21-29th - Submit this Week


Now this doesn't have to be hand drawn and scanned in or anything because I have accomplished this style and gotten printed before by doing all the line work in Vector with a mouse. See my "Classic Grills" example below.


Guidelines:
• Design/Illustration MUST be created using at least 1 Main Continuous Line
"Extra Smaller Supporting Lines" can be used as long as the Main Continuous Line is obvious, but 1 line only designs are encouraged.
• The Main Continuous Line CAN Overlap when needed.
No Mazes (I can just see all the damn Maze designs coming out of this and UGH NO to that)
• Only 1 to 2 colors can be used through out the entire design/illustration
• No limit per person on how many you can submit but if you are doing it right then one design might take you a while to get perfect. ...but I'm old, slow, and have very little freetime.
• Submit as many as you'd like on the deadline dates. Deadline - September 21-23rd
• Include the Logo on your submission


Original Deadline - September 21-23rd - Deadline.

Blind Contour Drawing Examples


Extreme Example art by Faber Castell


Here is another example that I had created for a work project. The art never got used but I really liked how the line work came out:


Saul Steinberg example with 1 main continuous line with several supporting extra lines:




Oscar Berger example with lines that cross over:

Sometimes it feels like if you don't get an email within the first 2 or 3 days of it coming out of voting then it isn't going to happen. Sometimes you can tell even before it ends voting that it isn't going to happen.

I say this only because I have known a number of people that got their winning email the same day their design finished up voting. But again those were some power house artists that already had multiple prints.

i quit thinking i'd get one of those emails a long time ago.

you just stop that kind of thinkin' right now, mister!!
