Canadian artist Owen Swain was one of the winners of our recent Holiday Giveaway. Owen posted about receiving his prize this week along with a drawing about it. The drawing is part of Owen’s daily drawing challenge which he celebrates during the Advent season. Here’s Owen’s report:

“I can hardly believe it myself. Stillman & Birn had a Holiday Giveaway that I saw on both Everyday Matters and Sketchbook Skool and I thought, OK, enter! Not only did I win but my selections arrived before Christmas, not after. Kudos on S&B for getting this shipped out fast to Canada.

Already a big fan of S&B products I am tickled to give the Beta Series a try. The Zeta and Gamma sketchbooks are beautiful and great fun to work in so I have no doubts this one will be as well. Have never used QoR High Chroma Watercolors. Looking forward to trying out this set of six paints. The box they are in, as I’ve seen in photos, features a mixing tray in the inside of the lid. Cool.

Now, the thing is, the package is just so Christmasy that I have decided to hold off opening it until the Day. I know. Weird. But oh what fun over the holidays and into the New Year! Reviews to come in 2015. Thanks, Stillman & Birn!” This is the link to Owen’s blog post:
