December’s THEME:


THEME: Coffee and Tea 

MAIL TO Host by:   (Date extended to mail by end of February because of the holidays) January  1 – 7th (always mail during the first week of the following month unless there is an extension.)

Coffee or Tea? No doubt you enjoy one or the other! So this month our theme is honoring those warm tasty energy giving beverages. Your cards must feature Coffee or Tea as a key part of your illustration. They do not have to be made using actual coffee or tea, though you can choose to do that if you wish.

Some silly example ideas

  • Someone is taking a swim in my drink!
  • Shower coffee! (Pabkins really did draw a card like this once…)
  • A marvelous tea party with the most unusual guests
  • An overworked barista or an exploding cappuccino machine?
  • Old fashioned coffee machines, or the different ways to make coffee. Drip, press, brew…tiny elves working the inside of the machine?
  • Someone on their much needed coffee/tea break
  • Slipping something into their cuppa…
  • Before and after that first cup

If ever in doubt just shoot me an email to ask a question. Send signups and any questions to 


These monthly themes are intended as a CHALLENGE as well as a way to trade fabulous original art and bond our little art community. Please rise to the challenge and treat your fellow artists with respect by putting in your best efforts. If you are unwilling to put forth true effort then please do not apply to join!
