Nuts and Bolts: The Difference is in the Details 

August 14, 2020


Nuts & Bolts – The Difference is in the Details 


It is often the little details that escape the artist’s eye. It’s likely that you’ve been so focused on other elements of your submission that you’ve overlooked one, small element.  It is always a good idea to step away from a design that you have been meticulously working on or ask a brutally honest companion to give it a once over. The review team is certainly a fresh set of eyes and often catches tiny fixes or areas of improvement. GCU is grateful for artists who are open to collaborating with the reviewers on minor adjustments that make a big difference.


Observation from the reviewer:
We love this idea and cute little bird however the cleanliness of the bird feeder is not ideal. If you can “clean” it up or have a different image we’re happy to re-review. Thank you for your understanding.

From the artist:
Thank you! I was so focused on the bird that I didn’t notice how bad the feeder looked! Let me know if this is better.

The difference is made in the details!
