Compelling characters drive a good story. 

With their back story, diverse personalities, and artistic details, our most beloved characters in books, movies and games give us a window to another world as we experience a story in its fullness.

We are seeking entries from illustrators and character designers who can create the best story-driven anthropomorphic characters for an upcoming story project. Each competitor will go through a screening exercise, and an art course, and will be expected to produce a story-driven anthropomorphic character.

This Art Contest is made possible by the strategic creative collaboration between Householder Publishing LLC and Coble Studios who are creating a collection of delightful Africa-inspired adventures that kids and their families can enjoy and learn from.
