hi! welcome to our group!
we do not decline work that is submitted to the wrong folder!

*please join as a member if you have work in your gallery that would fit in the group. if not, we're happy to have you as a watcher!

*you will be automatically accepted as a member when you request to join.

we accept only ONE submission per person per day.

**we accept work that is of good quality, finished work with good presentation (no poor scans, or poor/no cropping).

**we accept mature content work

*the gallery folders are listed on this page, you can use them as a guide as of what goes where.

*if your work does not have fairly obvious spirals or swirls in it, it will be declined.

yuck! enough rules! have fun, enjoy artwork with everyone's favorite shapes--spirals and swirls!

Our chat room is here!… :iconfacepalmextremeplz:
i thought it was time to tell the delightful members of
:iconspirals-and-swirls: some tidbits of interest. :iconspiralsmileplz:

first...don't forget that our Heart of Fire Contest is winding down.
as usual (aren't our contests excellent??) the contest folder is
accumulating awesome art.

if you haven't made an entry, you better get started! there's time
so don't stress, it's not over yet. not yet!  you have almost exactly 2 weeks left
before the contest deadline.
put your thinking caps on and get out art supplies (computers count, lol)
and create something fabulous!

the contest ends Sunday September 21 at 11:00 am Pacific time.

IMPORTANT....contest rules to keep in mind...

*you can only submit one artwork (this is different from our previous
*your entry must be submitted before the deadline, and that's'
final!!!!!! srsly don't try to argue with me about it! haha just wait and see!
*your entry must be made specifically for this contest. we will check dates,
don't you doubt it!

Good Luck!

there is another contest that you might be interested in.
one of our super talented members :iconmandala-jim:Mandala-Jim has one going on right now.
the contest is a competition  for the the artist that colors
this mandala
Entity No.7 by Mandala-Jim
here's the journal that explains everything
this journal explains

finally, i'm opening a new folder! one of our members suggested that
we have a folder for graphic design. i think it's a great idea!
i''ll make the folder today.

what can you submit to the Graphic Design folder?
haha i'm not entirely sure! here's a few..
designs for clothing,advertisements, web design, journal skins.
if anyone has any other ideas of what would be appropriate for the folder
please tell us in the comments.

sorry this is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long!

enough already!

have a wonderful spirally and swirly week!

hugs!  :iconspiralsmileplz:
