Celebrate this summer by showing off your art skills!

This is an anything goes art contest, meaning that so long as you made it, you can enter it -- whether it be drawing, painting, baking, knitting, crocheting, paper art, makeup, costuming, or anything else that you can come up with!

The only rule is that the art you create must be related to Matope, whether that means inspired by kin, the swamp, familiars, or anything else. Feel free to be creative and out of the box; your creativity will be rewarded. You'll also be rewarded if your art, in some way, also reflects the feeling of the summertime.

You can submit as many entries as you feel up to completing, but keep in mind that this is a judged contest, so make sure you put time into creating something worthy of the prizes above!

All entries must be submitted by September 2 at 11:59PM EST.

Please use the following form to submit your art:

Description of Art: I’m not the best at flat out art art, so instead I decided to try my hand at making a little comething out of air dry clay! It’s a little Zikwa figure. I’ve never done anything with clay before, so it was fun to experiment. The body is made out of clay, but the tail tuft is made of brushed wool yarn.

Description of Art:

In the summer, she travels to the ocean, seeking the cool blues of the sea and sky and the bright sunny warmth of the sun. Alone, but for crying sea birds, she frolics in the waves and smiles.

Done on an airplane art program, it helped kill some time during the long flight! She isn't based on any particular Kimeti, I just had an image of a mostly grey-toned doe relishing a bright day by the sea.

Description of Art: Fireflies are such an astounding part of summer. There's just something magical about them, and no amount of science or biology will take away from the wonder they bring me. I imagine kin would feel much the same way about them. This doe is in awe at the sight of lights in the sky and down on earth.

((also WOW my camera is terrible and I am sorry that I can't obtain a better quality image... the shimmery ink looks really pretty! I promise!))

Description of Art: Consider...Matope tarot deck. \o/ I decided on Distant Tidings as The Fool, referencing the ascension prompts that sent him on this Journey - however that ends up, he's already having the summer adventure of a lifetime! If I could ever get this printed properly, I'd love to foil-print the sunrays and "0. Fool" title with the little Acha glyph.
