Our 2016 EVENT
Didn't we tell you our 2016 Festival would be great! Well, here's why...
The DRAWTASTIC Festival of Drawing & Animation is a first of its kind! Its a unique and passionate event that celebrates, exhibits, demonstrates and teaches the wonderful qualities of 'Pencil Power' in its many forms!

In an age where digital technology seems to be taking over our world, its so easy for us to forget the incredible importance that drawing with pencils (traditional or digital) still holds in our modern creative world. So, many remarkable talents - from all aspects of the creative industry - now can come together each year through DRAWTASTIC, to celebrate the 'drawsomeness' of the pencil! Here are some of the special moments of our 2016 event...
There's no doubt that at the 2016 event DRAWATASTIC demonstrated, once and for all, that pencils are (still) truly 'Drawsome'!
Although not a winner at the event, Cielo Rquel's drawing came all the way from Columbia to compete!
If 'Pencil-Power' features in your creative world and you want to be part of this remarkable event in the future, please contact festival director, Tony White to let him know what you have to offer. And artists or filmmakers... how about entering our next year's 'Golden Pencil Awards' soon?
Finally, if you also have any of your own photos or videos of the 2016 event and you want to share them with us all, please send them HERE. It will be great to see the event through other people's eyes!
And (finally) finally... a big 'THANK YOU' to all our staff volunteers (Saille, Tai, Marisa, Chris, Ian, Kyle & Joey) for the 2016 event, as well as to all our silent supporters... Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Academy of Interactive Entertainment, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.
