Join the #WacomValentines Chain

January 28, 2020

This Valentine’s Day we want everyone in our community to feel seen and loved. We would like to invite you to use your art to break the ice, to turn a stranger into a friend, and to always try to use your talent to brighten someone’s day.

Let’s start a chain of beautiful #WacomValentines on Instagram to celebrate the ways in which art can heal, uplift, arouse, inspire and connect. Everyone who participates in the #WacomValentines chain has to create artwork for somebody else, or else the chain is broken, and part of the magic is gone, unleashing a dark curse on you and yours for what will feel like an eternity.


How to enter

If you want to participate in the #WacomValentines chain, follow the steps below:

1. Follow @wacom on Instagram.
2. Comment on our #WacomValentines post letting everyone know where you’re from.
3. Create a special valentine art piece for the person who comments below you. That person will then create a piece for the person commenting below them, and so on, creating a wonderful #WacomValentines chain. By commenting, you are asking for a valentine and also committing to creating one for someone else.
4. Post your digital valentine and tag their IG handle as well as @wacom. Be sure to include the hashtag #WacomValentines to be considered for entry.

*The first person to comment on the post will receive a personalized valentine art piece from our friend and talented illustrator, @daniellepioliart.
*Be sure to leave actual comments, not reply to comments.

When does the #WacomValentines chain end?

The #WacomValentines chain will begin January 31 and end February 14.

What’s in it for you?

What? You mean to tell us that using art to cross borders and connect with a fellow artist in the name of love is not enough incentive to participate? What if we told you we’re also going to do something special for you this Valentine’s and send 5 of our favorite #WacomValentines our new ride or die, Wacom One.

Who can participate?

This #WacomValentines chain is open to our entire community, however, due to shipping restrictions, Wacom prizes will only be available for our friends in North America, Latin America, and Europe.

When will we announce our favorites and how will they be reached?

We will announce our favorite #WacomValentines picks on February 15 on Instagram. Winners will be notified directly on Instagram as well.

Will you be our Wacom Valentines?

Our intention this Valentine’s Day is to help our creative community feel closer to each other and to use art as a bridge to start new friendships and spread love. Will you join us? We hope you will and we already love you for making it all this way.

Special thanks to Valfre and Danielle Pioli for all of their help on this project.

The importance of taking breaks ❤️

We’ve seen absolutely identified with the words of @ms.shortyj 💫 Taking care of yourself will help you grow as an artist.

Stopping is not quitting, is just taking a pause of the path to get another perspective 😉
