Wow, you guys dreamed up so many awesome ways to get around! There's giant slingshots, a flying bed, a bunch of skateboards, a carrot-shaped rocket and all kinds of very large animals 😀 Thanks to everyone who took part!

Marjorie Crosby-Fairall swept first place with her "Storm In A Teacup." So much drama here! How did the little fellas get there? Where are they going? Are they gonna make it??

Per Lee White, who judged the contest, "This piece had it all! Drama, excellent painting skills and composition. Lighting and color is wonderful too. Definitely a pro level showing for sure."

Second place went to Renske de Kinkelder with her fun illustration of a bear schlepping lots of stuff on a bike. Here's Lee again: "Beautiful illustration. Quirky and well painted. Nice clean presentation. I can see this doing well right now for a promo to publishing houses."
