Can you believe we're already into the second month of 2017?

We've received so many beautiful pieces of artwork over the winter, every one of them inspiring a new generation of thinkers and explorers.

Currently, we've already begun formatting the layouts of the pages for the artbook. Some of you may have already received some drafts of the pages from us; others are still yet to come in the next few months.

February to April are busy months for both of the organizers, so updates may be sparse. Once again, if you have any questions or if you would like to check up on the progress of the pages, please shoot us an email (infiniteartbook@gmail.com) ! Also, let us know if there are any stories you'd like to share!

Hi there, it’s November!
We just wanted to give a quick update on what’s been happening behind the scenes here. It’s been a pretty busy few months for all of us, and we’re trying our best to keep Infinite moving along.

With that being said, after our first round of invites, we decided to do a second round to better fill up the artbook, and showcase more amazing artists. Currently, we are waiting to see some of your WIPs and are excited to share them on our social media platforms, so be on the lookout for that in the near future!

In the meantime, feel free to send in any topics or artists you would like to see in Infinite. If you are an invited artist who have shown us a WIP, feel free to submit it as a deviation to be featured in the group’s gallery. Huge thank you to everyone supporting this project, we really appreciate it!

Hello August! There is a month until art contest closes. Get your entries in - you can do it!!
The page submission due date was yesterday for our invited artists. Please send us an email asap if you haven't already. 


We have received many beautiful submissions for our contest and it has been difficult to pick a winner. However, the wait is over! Here are the results:


Winner: moukitsu"Antikythera"

Antikythera by moukitsu

"The Antikythera Mechanism is an ancient orrery much alike to the astronomical clock that we know today. It was used to predict astronomical positions for calendrical purposes.  Since it was also used to predict when can people see certain constellations, I used the famous constellation Andromeda, the chained princess, to also represent that the artifact is from the country Greece. The artifact was found on the Antikythera shipwreck thus explaining the sea theme, the pieces of wood, and the silhouette of a shipwreck at the background. You can also see the artifact which is composed of gears and is rusted while buried in the sand."

Runner up: @Toriily - "Spectrum"

Spectrum by toriily
"In 1672 Sir Isaac Newton discovered that white light contained a spectrum of vibrant coloured rays. All the colours of the rainbow, all the colours that paint our world."

Thank you to everyone that entered the contest! Physical prizes will be sent out when the books are printed.
