January 1st - January 27th

:pencil:Welcome to Poetry Days:pencil:</b>

January is such a joyous month.  Not only do we have a new year to look forward to, but an entire month of cool winter weather that keeps us indoors doing the hobbies we love the most.  Which is artwork, of course!  

:w00t:

According to the TPG Calendar of Days, January is poetry month!  Poetry month is the time TPG Admins choose 3 special poems for our members to illustrate.  Members can choose one of the three poems to do artwork from, and submit to the competition.

For Poetry month, TPG has selected the following three poems:

"There Was A Crooked Man" by Anonymous
"Foreign Lands" by Robert Louis Stevenson
"El Dorado" by Edgar Allan Poe"


Competition ends January 27th.  Good luck to all of you!

December 1st - December 27


:snowflake:Welcome to Winter Days:snowflake:

And so we come to the end of a year.  But this is no time to be sad!  According to the TPG Calendar of Days, the month of December is "Winter Days"!!!

Now, we here at The-Pink-Giraffe are certain we need not remind our members of how important the month of December is, especially to a child.  Everyone knows winter is all about good cheer and making memories. So let us celebrate December in our own way, by creating "Your Personal Winter-Wonderland!".

"Your Personal Winter Wonderland" can be any place you desire to be, doing anything you wish to be doing during the winter season.  Whether it's building a snowman, skiing, sitting in front of a nice warm fireplace with a book and a cup of hot chocolate, or even out on a sandy beach somewhere away from the snow.  It's your choice, and TPG cannot wait to see what all you guys come up with!


Good luck to all of you!

November 1st - November 26th 2009


:floating:Welcome to Myth Days!:floating:

Tis November, and according to the TPG Calendar of Days, November is "Myth Days"!  Everyone collect your pencils, get out your paper and a book on mythology, because this month's competition is "Pegasus"!

Read on for inspirational material.

Pegasus is the winged horse from Greek mythology.  According to the myth, after Perseus slayed Medusa, the blood from her body mingled with the earth and produced this wonderous creature.  It is said that where his hoof strikes the earth, a spring bursts forth.
  
The young warrior, Bellerophon, was the first to ride Pegasus, who aided him in many battles, one being the famed conquest against a vicious chimera.  Bellerophon was thereby considered unconquerable, as he and his steed proved to be victorious in all the battles that they fought together.  Pegasus wore a golden bridle, (given to Bellerohpon by Minerva), which bound the mythical beast to the warrior.

But Pegasus and Bellerophon parted.  Bellerophon became prideful after so many victories,  and upon angering the Gods with his arrogence, he attempted to fly into heaven mounted on Pegasus' back, but failed.  To hinder the winged horse, Jupiter sent a gadfly, which stung the beast and made him throw his rider to the earth.  Due to the fall, Bellerophon became blind and lame.
