“Buu-chan Joins the Carnival” Forum Art Contest

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, artists and creators of all ages!  Join us for the most amazing art contest in the history of AnimeIowa!  Our mascot Buu-chan has run off to join the carnival, and he needs your help!

Our 2017 convention theme is “The Dark Carnival of Pigs”, and Buu-chan is ready to become a performer.  But what will our porcine mascot do at the carnival?  Will he become a traditional performer such as an aerialist on the flying trapeze?  Maybe the strong man?  Or has he been lured in by the darker side of show, conjuring ancient magic, or becoming an unusual freak show attraction?

Dazzle the world with your amazing art skills, and show us Buu-chan’s role in the carnival.  His circus career is in your hands!  For full contest details, please visit the contest info thread on the AnimeIowa Forums.

Art Show Results

AnimeIowa would like to thank every artist who submitted their artwork into the Art Exhibition Show this year. We know that there were a few bumps along the way getting information out to everyone before the Convention this year. We apologize for that and hope to have things smoothed out and ready for next year’s Anime Iowa Art Exhibition Show.

“What’s this, there is a show again next year???”

Yes there will be a show next year, so start thinking of what art pieces you would like to submit ^_^
