Theme: "Gotta Paint ‘em All!" Gen. 1 Pokemon
This year’s theme is a throwback to the 90’s introduction of Pokemon Generation 1. We are asking artists to pick a single Pokemon from Generation 1 as their inspiration. Below we have provided a link to a Gen 1 Pokemon list:
How the artist chooses to bring that interpretation to life through their work is up to each individual.
