The Line it is Drawn – 2017 Artist Tryouts!

Here is the first week of Line it is Drawn artists. At the end of this piece, I'll list the choices that these artists will pick from for the SECOND week. Then, next week, after the next week's pieces are posted, you will all vote on your two favorites and then I'll pick three more myself!

I must say, I'm really impressed with the quality of these pieces. Great work, everyone!
