design*sponge is hosting a scholarship contest for current design students. the contest is intended to assist art and design students in the pursuit of their creative endeavors through financial support. yesterday, the 13 finalists were listed on the site. I was browsing through the work of some amazing artists, when my eyes immediately drew to the illustration of Emily Dove Gross. she designs gig posters with the most amazing skill and detail. it really inspires me to get down to the smallest detail in my work and spend a little more time developing my art. of course being in a similar field, my vote went to her. but click here to see all of the other incredible artists.
