Special Guest Juror's Message

BIG THANKS to all of the artists participating in the contest and to the Character Design Team for having me a guest juror! 

There were some amazingly fun and inventive entries and I enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with. I've chosen Grace Park as this month's winner for the strong sense of character attitude and dynamic handling of his shapes and color. 

Fantastic job Grace and I can't wait to see more of your work in the future!
