Pandora Drawing Competition

 

Win a special signed, limited, first-edition copy of Pandora

All you have to do is watch the two videos, “How to draw Pandora”  and “How to draw Pandora’s box”  and send me your own drawing based on the videos, elaborating your drawings, using your imagination and interpretation of the story of Pandora, and what you think may be hidden in her box.

There will be a prize for the drawing that Shoo Rayner likes the best – It is entirely his personal choice and his decision is final. The closing date is 4:00 pm London time Friday 7th December 2018 and the winner will be announced on 4:00 pm London time Monday 10th December in the compilation and celebration video.

The prize is a signed, limited, first-edition copy of Pandora, including the book, warning wrapper, inspirational poster and a sealed message from Pandora – there were only 100 copies printed in the first edition, so it is quite rare!

The competition is free to enter and open to all ages – interpretation, style and ideas are scored as much as technique.

Take your time, watch the videos and make your drawing. Then send a scan or digital photograph to drawings@shoorayner.com adding your name and age.

Children under the age of 13 must have their parent or guardian’s permission. If under 13, please state clearly on your email, that your parent, carer or guardian has given you permission to enter, otherwise entry email will be deleted.

Archimedes – the Man who invented the Death Ray

Archimedes lived over 2,000 years ago in Syracuse on the island of Sicily.

He was a mathematician, astronomer, physicist, engineer and inventor.

Many of his great inventions came about while defending Syracuse when it came under attack from the Romans.

Click here for signed copies with free poster.

The leader of the Roman army was Marcus Claudius Marcellus. Eventually Marcellus won the war. Archimedes died in the Siege of Syracuse, even though Marcellus had given strict orders that Archimedes should be captured alive. Marcellus admired the genius and knew that he had more invention to offer the world. Who knows how history may have changed if Archimedes had lived to live the rest of his life in peaceful study and contemplation?

In this book, Marcus Claudius Marcellus looks back on his life and explains to his young son exactly why Archimedes was possibly the cleverest person that ever lived.

Here are a few videos that show you how to draw Archimedes and how to get to grips with drawing circles and spheres, the subjects that fascinated Archimedes so much, a fascination that led him to his greatest invention Pi – the number that lets us work out the circumference of circles and the area of the surface of a sphere.
