Our holiday competition -and get your work seen by thousands every day.
Lots of you who join MeMyArt post your picture in your profile - that's great we really like it when you do. Some of you though, either because you don't get around to it or because you don't want to show us what you look like (that's fine too) don't post a picture so we put a default boring grey face in its place.
Let's see if we can create our own drawing for the default profile picture - all entries gratefully received - by 3 January please.
We'll post them in this blog and you can all vote for the winner.
The prize: one the first of our A1 portfolio cases ( which are arriving in January) sent to you FREE!
Have a great holiday - and get your work uploaded and sorted while you can!

We had an amazing time at the UCAS Design your Future exhibition in Manchester - over 2000 of you stopped at our stand to find out what it was all about.
We were premiering our new video (see below) and showing you how you can get the best out of the site.
A quick breather before the same exhibition in London Olympia next week - if you are visiting we will see you there. (Every half hour we are giving away an A2 portfolio free)

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily find students from one specific art college on the internet? You could see what the colleges styles were like and how each student varies. None of their websites seem to have much if any of the students work. The end of year exhibitions are on at a time when you haven’t really begun applying and it’s when everyone’s really busy with exams or their own exhibitions. In any case it’s often very far to travel just to then find out it’s not for you.
When I went for my interviews for Foundation I was pretty shocked by everyone else’s work - the standard and style were so varying. I had only really seen school friends’ stuff (all with a similar sort of style and way of thinking). Wouldn’t it be great to be able to see what other people my age were doing and where I stood in comparison to them?
“Wouldn’t it be great….”, I kept thinking and every time I asked this question, I answered myself “why not?” There was no website specifically for art students, no web site to provide this information – well at all easily anyway.
So over the next few months I got talking to friends and it wasn't long before I was buzzing with ideas. Then the tricky part was to narrow everything that I wanted down to realistic goals and from this MeMyArt.com was born…

MeMyArt is an amazing adventure – a really exciting time – one idea expanding and morphing over the last year and slowly its coming together.
I am an art student full of all the hopes and delusions, the fear and trepidation of all of us. My favourite subject at school was Art (well actually Textiles), – in fact it was all I really cared about – and I knew I wanted to continue with it afterwards. I wasn’t exactly sure where or how, but I loved the creativity and excitement of it all, I knew its where I wanted to be.
So why did it all have to be so difficult? Why was I having to spend so much time doing stuff around art, but not actually doing art? I was having to spend endless hours getting my applications sorted for Art Foundation during my A levels, getting portfolios together, dreaming up my personal statements, researching universities and colleges AND trying to have a life. It seemed mad that this was the process, so time consuming and so far from actually doing art.
I left school last year – fortunately with a place on the Foundation course I was hoping for. Summer soon came round and slowly I became human again or at least somewhere near rational and I began to start thinking of a way that all this could be made that bit easier..
And so, last summer, it all began. I didn’t quite realise just what I was getting myself into, hopes and disappointment, laughter and tears, debt and more debt…
