Yellow is for me graphic by Azrol Kassim using Sketchbook Pro

You remember that time you won a spanking for sketching all over your little brother with permanent marker? No? You’ve probably just repressed that event. No matter, because you can channel your creative sketching ability once again and win 1 MILLION spankings… in the form of your graphics being displayed to the thousands of people who have downloaded the Sketchbook Mobile app for their iPhone and iPad.

How could this be? Autodesk is calling for entries to the SketchBook Hero Image Contest. Here are the details…
