Here we are again folks, ART EXPLOSION, THIS IS WEEK 40! The theme this week is EXPRESS YOURSELF! This is very open ended but we would like you to use this as an opportunity to tell the world something about you, be creative and surprise us!

Prize Update!!!

Once again we have a special sponsor and guest judge: @vachemorte and as of today we also have sponsorship from @curie!!! They will be adding 18 Steem (roughly 25 SBD) per contest so the prize pool is now 50 SBD!

Please note that once again the duration to submit will be two weeks so take your time and make something great!

As discussed in the last winners post, we have had some issues with plagiarism which is making things difficult, please make every effort you can to help us feel safe in knowing that this is your art. Whether that be a photo of the art with a dated paper and your Steemit name, or another method of your choice. If we can not be sure we will most likely skip over you when choosing the winners.

The Rules

  • Upvoting and Resteeming this post is appreciated :)
  • Make some art (one entry per person and please new art only)
  • Make a post of your own for your entry (add artexplosion in the tags)
  • In your post describe your medium/process a bit, and show a few process images
  • Please note that we are no longer accepting writing/poetry
  • Link it here in the comments obviously so I can find it.
  • All entries must be submitted before Saturday June 9th at 3PM EST.

We'll be choosing the winners based on whatever tickles and touches us the most!

This is not a requirement but it would be a nice gesture to view the other entries and upvote them if you like so we can support each other and pass this on to any artists or friends you think may be interested :)

I can't wait to see what you create!

Sounds interesting I think it's time to seek inspiration

Hello dear, I decided to EXPRESS MYSELF and my passion for what I do as a cartoonist and a digital painter. I created the art myself too and described the process.

I am unable to upvote because it has passed the period to do so, but I resteemed. I'm still thankful that the contest is on.

Having done all that is required of me, here is my entry:

Thank you!
