Special Guest Juror's Message

The entries this month were incredibly strong!

I seriously struggled to narrow my choice down to 50 pieces, let alone select one winner! Céline’s piece really stood out to me as it not only has some intriguing storytelling going on, it’s also a beautifully executed and well thought-out design and I love the modern twist too!
