Some FAQs:

When do I get there? Arrive at 16:30 so we organize all logistics, as in computer, projector, etc., you can test the wacom - see how it feels, the pens, etc. 

What is the theme for my drawing? You'll be given a song title beforehand with one sentence explanation so you can semi - prepare. I will get these to you next week.

How is the winner chosen? We show them one after the other at the end and let the public vote. 

In what order will I draw? You can choose the name of the song and then you will be queued based on the order of the song being played.

Will it be color or b/w and in what program? You may work in black in white and in Ai or Ps. Please reply with your preference.
