The First Annual Hen&ink Iconic Holiday Black Hen Contest

Last year, Doug Cushman gave the Black Hen of Hen&ink’s logo a holiday dash of color (and additional style, n’est ce pas!?).



THIS IS NOW (extra points if you can name the author of that book sans Google et al) and you are invited to show us your take on our iconic bird for a chance to be the “face of Hen&ink” for the 2013 holidays.

Please send your interpretation of the Hen&ink Hen to info [a] henandink.com by 1 December 2013. The contest is open to Coop and non-Coop members. If the winning illustration is by a Coop member, s/he get lots of extra scratching. If the winning illustration is by a  a non-Coop member, the illustrator will be entitled to one picture-book project critique and possibly an offer of representation.

NOTE: Only one entry per person. Repeating myself, but please send only one jpg or pdf per artist, along with a short bio (100 words). Please include your name  in the filename (ex: SmithBlackHen13.jpg). Any multiple entries will be discarded. Judging is completely subjective and final. Only the winner will be notified of the outcome before we go live with the image.
