In the final months of 2007, The Muppet Newsflash ran their first ever contest. We called upon the community of fans to submit original artwork inspired by the work and magic of Jim Henson. We wanted to showcase the talents of Muppet fans around the world by creating the first ever Muppet Fan Art Calendar for 2008.
We received submissions from more than 30 artists and graphic makers and the final images were selected by a panel of judges, with the top twelve pieces of artwork being featured in the calendar.
We would like to congratulate the winning artists and would like to thank all of the talented artists who participated in this exciting debut fan art calendar.
