This holiday season, we’re challenging our community to give the #GiftOfCreativity. In return, we will create the ultimate artist gift sets with the help of some of our friends and send them to four generous creatives throughout December. Each one of these special gift sets is filled with art prints, toys, stickers, books, and other goodies from our generous friends. They also include art supplies and software from our partners, and of course Wacom gear and swag!
