The end of 2017 is almost here and the Talenthouse Team has had an amazing year launching tons of new Creative Invites and admiring the thousands of artworks that were submitted and uploaded. Thousands of magnificent artworks from around the world came in 2017, each one uniquely different, striking and beautiful. A myriad of brilliant creative ideas and styles were expressed and it was an amazing honor for all of us in the Talenthouse Team to see all the new artworks on a daily basis. The Team has grown a bit this year so here are our very own personal favorites from the 2017 Creative Invites. Happy holidays, see you in 2018.
