You-Topia Contest

DIY GeekMom


Cheryl Lee


Sitting down to sketch or paint a place you love is one of the best ways of revisiting it. That’s because getting the images on paper forces you to re-imagine the sights and sounds, making it come alive more fully in your memory.

The folks at They Draw & Travel know all about this process.  They urge you to map out your favorite place, then share it with others on their site. There you’ll find unique and imaginative glimpses of places like Mtscheta, Georgia and North Devon, UK and Orange, Texas.

If you need further encouragement, they’re currently running a contest called You-Topia which offers a total of $1,500 in cash and prizes.

Don’t forget their companion site  They Draw & Cook, and freshly released book They Draw and Cook: 107 Recipes Illustrated by Artists from Around the World which we covered last year in GeekMom.

Now start drawing!
