toonpool.com: Winners of the Portrait Competition / Bookstore Staff
1000 thanks again to the artists joining our bookstore contest for their wonderful artworks!!! There had been a long jury session and it was very hard for the bookstore's staff to arrive at a final decision (opinions are bound to be subjective as always...). So winners elected by the staff are:
1.) Arwantha Artigala (250 Euro): http://www.toonpool.com/cartoons/bookstore_184336 (See top)
2.) NITA/Dragica Ohashi (150 Euro): http://www.toonpool.com/cartoons/Book_183079
3.) KARKA/Joseba Berrondo Arbelaiz (100 Euro): http://www.toonpool.com/cartoons/bookstore%206_185749
