I've spent the last few years educating and training myself in the field of CG art, while trying to give as much as possible back to the online art community by sharing my experiences along the way (mainly on my blog). But as a brand new artist on the Swedish illustrators' scene it's been very difficult to gain enough recognition to start making a living from my newly acquired skills.

The annual Swedish competition Kolla! is a way for people like me to get noticed. A jury of five persons per category select their favorite illustrations from over 1300 submissions. From the jury's first selection of final nominees, it looks like this year's jury really favors naivistic, handdrawn, whimsical, and very editorial illustration styles. My more painterly and complex CG illustrations weren't even considered for any of the main awards, even though I'm convinced they were made with as much skill and technical knowledge as many of the now nominated submissions.

However, I still have a chance to win the People's Choice Award, which could help me to come out of anonymity in my own country so I can start making proper money from this trade. With the huge debts I've accumulated over these years of studies I could really use a payoff now.

That's where I want to ask for your help. You can quickly give your vote to all three illustrations I've submitted. These are:

1. The Peace Hunter's City

2. Daigle - Reign of Terror

3. Monochroma

At the bottom of each submission page (where the links above will take you) you have to write your email address (where it says E-POST) and click on the button that says Rösta (which means Vote). Then go to your email inbox, open the email for each vote, and click on the link to confirm your vote. It's as easy as that.

Also, by sharing this post you can help me even more.

Thanks for helping a struggling young artist realizing his Dream!
