Special Guest Juror's Message

Hello everyone! It was REALLY HARD to pick up a single design among all the incredible submissions this month. But a choice has to be made and this artwork created by Samantha Germaine Sim is, without a doubt, one of my favourites.

There were so many outstanding designs on a technical level, but as my personal winner I wanted to choose something that had more than that, an artwork that was able to bring something new to the table with a good mix of creative and design ideas combined together, a character that could almost speak to me.

Samantha's work is perfect for all of this, a truly "coup de coeur". Congratulations to her and all the other participants of this challenge. As a last note, I would also like to make a special mention to the artwork by Kathryn Hudson. Her design was gorgeous and it was surely one of my ''front runners'' for this challenge :) 

Well done!

- Barbara Canepa
