We are very excited for this week’s giveaway. I’m so excited that I’m extending the deadline to include next week’s topic as well!
I have used Hire An Illustrator for years now, and you can find my first acrylic painting ever in the book they are giving away (I was all digital previously).
Read below for more info on HAI, how to enter, and how important it is to share this on your social networks.
How to Enter
Submit an illustration for the topic of the week, SURVIVAL or next week’s topic (TBD) (here’s how). It’s that easy! We will pick one lucky winner at random from the comments, and our regular Pick of the Week will get the set of two.
Yes, you can enter twice by illustrating for both topics!

Freelance illustrator Petra Hämmerleinova was born in Prague and lived in Munich, where she graduated in fashion and graphic design in 1997. After several years of working as an in-house designer, she decided to do what she loves most and started her career as an illustrator. Petra’s style is a mix of hand-drawn characters, patterns, and lettering in pencil, watercolor, and ink. She combines all of these elements digitally to create beautifully detailed scenes and patterns populated by cute and quirky characters. Petra currently lives in Bavaria/Germany.
