NŌM 800 Art Contest!

I've just reached NŌM #800!! Can you believe I've made so many? (I can't)
To celebrate, I thought I'd hold a little contest and give away #800 here as the prize. He's strung on a necklace so you can wear him around and brag to everyone you see that you won him with your awesome art entry. ;)

So, here's how it works:
1. Create an original piece of art featuring gnomes in some way. It must be original and it must be by you. You can enter more than once, but keep it to 3 or less. :)
Don't draw? It can be any media you like. You can sew or sculpt something, write a song, a poem, a story, or anything else creative you can think of!
2. Upload it somewhere on the internet and post a comment here with the link so we can see your creation!
3. I want to give you plenty of time, so one month from today (May 22, 2012) I will announce the winner and feature your art piece in a special blog post.
The winner will be chosen by our impartial judge, my husband. :) (he has unique taste so do your best to impress him!!)

In the meantime, be sure to check out the NŌMs available for adoption in the shop right now:

Have fun!!

UPDATE: Congrats to our winner and many thanks to everyone who entered! 


  1. What a great idea! I'm already brain storming! :)
    I do have a question though, can I make several art peices and enter them all? Like, 2 or 3? Just curious!
    Thanks again! Anna

  2. Thanks Anna! You can enter up to 3 things. I revised the rules above. :)

  3. Congrats on NOM #800! I love my NOM collection and really enjoy following your work.

    My submission to the contest is at http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4rch89TAk1rx9mklo1_1280.jpg.

    It is a print of a gnome made with a hand-carved printing block and ink. Design inspiration is from Sara Harvey's gnome plush (etsy seller, Multiple Personality).
