Frogs Colouring Contest
We held our very first colouring contest on Instagram (@kingyo.kintsugi) last month in July, inspired by our wonderful customers, who had so many great suggestions for our embroidered designs!
The design set out to be coloured for the contest was one of the trio in our Frogs patch, from our Mini collection. Joel's inspiration for Frogs was Kawanabe Kyōsai's treatment of the subject; in particular, Kyōsai's uncanny ability to anthropomorphize and project charisma into his drawings.
We were so pleased with the amazing creativity of those who participated! Here's some of the marvellous artwork submitted:
It was very difficult, but Joel eventually picked his top 3 favourite entries, and these were posted for voting via our Instagram stories.
The two runner-ups:
And the winning design of our Frogs colouring contest was this striking teal and orange combination!
Congratulations to Aaron Ball for submitting this fantastic colour choice...you've won a prize bundle of embroidered patches, stickers and pins - which of course includes Frogs in your colour-way! We will be sending Frogs to three of our Instagram followers who voted for the winning entry as well. Thank you to all who participated and made our first colouring contest so fun!
Frogs is now available for purchase on our online store.
