The challenge was

Make Frontier-Focused Art that Celebrates the West

Head west, young artist!

Is Manifest Destiny calling your name? Feeling moved to pack up your settlement and stake your claim where the rivers flow with gold, the land’s cheap, and purple mountains majesty shelter your homestead? Hop on a wagon train and hit the Oregon Trail, we’re heading to the Old West in this design challenge for gunslingers and saloon madames.

Give us your rootin’-tootin’ art inspired by days of greed and glory, blazing saddles, and high noon showdowns. Territorial expansion knows no bounds in this fast-draw art duel at the O.K. Corral. Show us trail-blazing designs, the likes of which Will Smith would tip his hat to in a steampunk-style western from the late ‘90s. Put on your chaps, boots, and ten-gallon hat, and draw!

The Optical Illusion Kid by Barak Hardley
