The new year has begun and the first Free-For-All of 2018 has ended. This month, we were treated to a multitude of different styles, techniques, and media, all featuring this month’s FaunaFocus, the common palm civet, also known as the Asian palm civet or the Luwak. Surprisingly, many of our contestants decided to include coffee cherries within their compositions, a gentle nod toward the civet’s involvement in the world’s most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak. Thank you to each person who chose to enter and share their work with our community! We always enjoy critiquing your works!
Congratulations to January 2018’s Free-For-All Winner, Yodeldog (Shane S.)! Yodeldog submitted a small 2.5″x3.5″ Artist Trading Card featuring the common palm civet amongst branches full of lush coffee cherries. Drawn with Prismacolor colored pencils on a dark background, this artwork wowed the judges with its rich level of detail and carefully constructed composition. Yodeldog has chosen the FaunaFocus animal of the month for March 2018, which will be announced at the end of the judging livestream in February.
