THIS OPEN CALL IS CLOSED
Drawing United’s latest collaboration is a colouring book, but not any colouring book.
Aimed at kids between 4 and 10, this book intends to educate them about environmental issues we are facing, that they will probably face too as adults.
The book will emphasise the issue of ‘Habitat Loss’ for the wildlife around us.
We have the contents sorted but are missing the cover design for it.
This is where you come in, submit your idea as a cover design and get your name associated to this educational project.
The cover design should take into account the target audience and be themed around the protection of our environment. Featuring endangered species would be a good consideration. Please favour the portrait orientation and an A4 ratio for your design. A .jpg or .png format is required.
The winning design, chosen by the Drawing United team, will feature on the colouring book. Full mention of the artist on the book as well as through our social media channels and newsletter.
Free copy of the book & We will fine print an A4 design/artwork of yours… for FREE obviously.
Help us to educate the next generation

Below is an example of what the content of the colouring book may look like – colouring character and background as well as a message about current and pressing environmental issues.
A word from Pierrick, Drawing United founder
I believe that ‘Knowledge Is Power” (Sir Francis Bacon) and that is the first step towards saving our planet and its ecosystem.
A few years ago, I learned that my cup of coffee I was getting pretty much every morning from one of these coffee shops was one of the worst things I could do for the environment.
On average, only 1 out of 400 disposable plastic coffee cups gets recycled (!). The waterproof feature of these cups – there is a thin layer of plastic all around (making them water tight), makes them very hard to recycle since there are only 4 sites in the UK that have the expertise to separate the plastic from the paper.
So you will have guessed by now, 399 cups out of 400 will end up in a landfill or be sent to a poorer country to deal with it. But worst of all, it will inevitably creep into our waterways and finally our oceans killing turtles, dolphins and all marine wildlife that will eat it.
The above actually was a wake up call for me and is why I put together Drawing United in the first place.
I hope you will join us, artists or not, and contribute to our efforts to raise awareness via the medium of your art, blog posts or any form of green activism
