We’re proud to present the winning works in Drawing’s second annual Shades of Gray Competition, which challenges artists to submit their best drawings, in any medium, created entirely in black, white, and gray.
The following 14 drawings were selected as the winners from more than 1,000 entries by a panel of judges. You can see them in the pages of the spring issue of Drawing, along with some words by the artists about how they created these captivating works.
We’re also pleased to announce that the third annual Shades of Gray competition is now open. If you’d like to see your own work in the pages of Drawing, and possibly win up to $1,000, this is your chance. For details, and to enter, click here. The deadline for entries is September 8, 2014.
