If you look closely you will see that every design for the last 10+ years has had both at least one mushroom and one lemon - more are optional.
Artist must have a working cell phone and be willing to email, text or talk on the phone about the design. Please do NOT submit artwork if this is not the case.
Must be available between the time their artwork is chosen and a few weeks before the fair for support.
The Design is YOUR artwork and we respect that, but it also has to fit our image. And because we are selling T-Shirts and possibly other items with the artwork you must be willing to turn over ownership of the work to HNA (Hessler Neighborhood Association).
Must be willing to edit, rework or have your work edited by our artists to fit the theme and satisfy the Hessler Committee.
Concept, sketches and ideas for graphics and artwork may be hand drawn, BUT it will need to be converted to a digital file and color separated to print Postcards, Banners, Posters and T-Shirts. So, it would be ideal if the artist was able to work in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator to help with that conversion.
Because one of our primary goals is to print T-Shirts we typically limit the color palette to 5-6 colors. More than that is expensive and the shirt does not breathe if it's solid ink - but that also depends on the artwork.
These links will show you our history of designs to give you an idea of where we've been and our style.
