Arrow Suggest 2017 Monthly ATC Contest Themes

It's that time again! Time to provide a list of your favorite ATC themes for the monthly contests in 2017!

Themes that work best are those that a lot of artists would enjoy doing...you can look through the contests of previous years to see the kinds of themes that attract the most participants. Themes should be doable in any kind of ATC medium: HD, HP, collage, digital, mixed media, fabric, etc.

I'll get the ball rolling with some themes of my own.

Dogs
Winter scenes
Mollusks
Rocketships
Cartoon Humor
Black & White
At the Zoo
Steampunk Sealife


You'll have until November 24th to list your theme ideas. Then I'll compile a voting list from those that seem the most suitable for the contest.

Also, I've a poll attached to see what you think about trying something new for a couple of the months. Vote if you will

Put on your thinking caps, poke your muse, and give us some great ideas!

Just a few more. Sorry. Too much coffee today.

Minimalism
Wabi Sabi - it is the Japanese way of looking at the beauty of things that are imperfect and decaying such as, collapsed barns, weathered wood, cracked pottery, vintage or antique items. Lots of examples on pinterest.
