Last month, young artist and illustrator Erin Koehler won Hinge Digital’s inaugural “Bring Your World To Life” character design contest, which was sponsored by Wacom Technology Corp., Luxology and Animation Magazine.
“Hinge Digital is focused on telling original stories, developing unique characters and worlds, and collaborating with new talents. We see the Bringing Your World to Life contest as an opportunity to help bring undiscovered talent to the forefront,” explains Roland Gauthier, cofounder of Hinge Digital. “The winning contest submission can be from any story genre and any creative level or background. The only requirements are that each entry is original and compelling.
“We were very pleased with the work submitted to the Bring Your World to Life Contest,” says Hinge Digital co-founder, Michael Kuehn. “We are excited to have helped showcase a wide variety of talented artists and storytellers through the contest and look forward to working with them in the future.”
