We'd love to see your black and white (with a touch of colour) entries.   Remember we happily accept all forms of paper crafting for your entry and encourage both digital and international submissions.  All we ask is that you create an original entry for our challenge although you are most welcome to combine with a sketch challenge if you wish.  You have until midnight last day of the month to submit your entry.
