Proko Challenge Deadline Coming Monday

We’re coming up on the deadline for the May Proko Challenge that I’ll be officiating. The goal is to reimagine something as a creature or character. I painted this weird encounter in grisaille gouache around 1981 when I was a self-taught art student. Rules
1. Like this post & follow the Instagram accounts of @jamesgurneyart, @prokotv, and @wacom
2. Transform household objects, vehicles, or whatever into a character or creature! Depict them interacting with an environment rather than individual character design. It can be a drawing, painting, or sculpture. Digital or traditional.
3. Post it to your Instagram account using #prokochallenge
4. I will judge based on originality, consistency of vision, well-thought-out implied story, and convincing execution in terms of design, color, lighting, dynamics, and perspective.

And I'll make a reaction video! The deadline is - Monday, June 1 at 11:59 pm (EST)
