[Challenge] 2016.OCT : Right now! Let’s draw!


Hello , PEN.ple!

10 months have passed already since I started to greet PEN.ple each month.
It seems time really flies :)

As you know, Challenge topic for October is ‘Let’s draw City Story’.
And ‘ For 2017 Calendar’ is attached to the back of it.
It’s a annual PEN.UP calendar challenge that brings you joy.

This year, the number of pictures seems much less than last year. T^T
The topic might have been too difficult~. On the other hand, it seems the pictures that have been posted are comparatively of high quality.

Thus I'm looking forward to seeing them.

As I mentioned in the previous notice!

Again this year, PEN.UP calendar will be presented to our Penple in a new look.
One side will have a postcard; the other side a calendar.

While looking at the pictures that took part in this Challenge, I found it interesting to see various cities in diverse countries at a glance.
It's very exciting to see the cities that I've never seen before.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Statue of Liberty in New York, and even Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul!

You can see the cities of different concepts:

Not only the landmarks that represent each country, but also the cities that you don't know much about, such as a quiet city which you can feel the silence even from the picture, as well as a fantastic city which you've never seen before with your own eyes!

You still have ten days left.
Don’t think too hard about it~

Draw the beautiful scenery in front of your own house!
My own city story is not far from you.
