Hello! To celebrate the opening of my new Etsy shop, Art by Sylvia Liu and my new Facebook page, Art by Sylvia Liu, I'm giving away two signed limited edition prints. Each one is a museum-quality glicee (fine art print), printed with the highest quality inks on acid-free, 100% cotton paper. The 10 x 10 in. paper fits a standard size frame. To see more details about each print, check out their listings on Etsy: "Mesmerize" and "Stay." For this giveaway, I will mail the prints anywhere in the world for free (international customs excluded).

Here are the rules for the giveaway: 

I know I'm supposed to get you to like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter as a condition for a giveaway, but I don't believe in that quid pro quo stuff. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and let me know which print you prefer. I will pick two winners using and send the winners the print of their choice. Your comment is your entry. 

I will pick and post the winners on Friday, February 17 and leave a cut off post after which the contest will be closed.

In order for me to notify you if you have won, please make sure I can reach you in one of these ways:
  • your clickable link goes to a blog or website with your contact information,
  • you follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook so I can contact you there (you're in no way required to do this),
  • you are known to me (leave your name or initials),
  • you may leave your email in the comment section if you are comfortable doing so, or
  • check back on February 17 for the announcement of the winners.

Good luck and thanks for participating! 


  1. We love your new artwork! If you give us the fish, we will proudly display it on our wall in Cairo and garner you an international following.

  2. Absolutely love the fish print. Beautiful work, Sylvia!

  3. i like the animal zombie-eyed one!

  4. I'm loving Mesmerize! Just goofy enough to be for adults!

  5. I love your style! I would be honored to have either print, but the "Stay" print really made me giggle!

  6. Sallianne's Address (see above) is

    Love the "Stay" print!

  7. I always need to see what else is out there, so I'm loving the fish print. Congrats Sylvia!

  8. Love Mesmerize. Seems to be my default state these days!

  9. Sylvia - I like them both but I think "Stay" is my favorite. Good luck getting the site off and going. Kate Mazulewicz

  10. Wild about the hobo fish. Leaving to explore takes real courage. Fingers crossed :)

  11. Sylvia,

    I love both of your prints, and since I am fortunate enough to have Mesmerize, I'd like to opt for Stay!

    You are so talented and fun!~

  12. Fish for me - I can relate, sometimes I'd like to pack up my little red knapsack and escape!

    1. If you happen to stop back again, can you reply to this reply and let me know who you are? Initials are fine if you're one of my friends. Thanks!

  13. Hi Slyvia of Lu Land - I love your work -so much fun! I gave your blog a Liebster award!

  14. Sylvia I love Stay and Lion Fish!!! jajajaja wish I could get them both!!Very best of luck!!! Jose Paez from Caracas!

  15. Great prints! We especially love 'Mesmerize"

  16. Sylvia, fellow 12x12er, why have I not been here before?! I LOVE your work - so wonderfully whimsical. Being a sea girl and a wanderer, I'd definitely have to go with "Stay" - that's a fish I can relate to!

    (P.S. I already follow you on Twitter and now I've liked you on FB, just because I wanted to.)

  17. I like the fish print. :)

    I should be one of your friends or likers on Facebook, but just in case, here's my e-mail:

  18. Hello Sylvia!
    I think both prints are super!
    I will follow you on fb!

  19. I love them both! How to choose? I think my youngest would like to have mesmerize up in his room, although I might have to steal it and show it off in the gallery at my cafe for a while if I happen to win. I followed you on Twitter, even though you say we don't have to!

  20. Hi Sylvia, It's too hard to decide, they are both so different and adorable. I guess I'll go with the fishy one. :) Thanks for hosting a giveaway!!

  21. Cute pics Sylvia. I really like the goldfish bowl one. What a great giveaway idea.

  22. I puffy, sparkly heart the Mesmerize print. Something about the abstract background with the cute, brightly colored animals fascinates me. I could see my 1 year old staring and giggling at that print, as it hung in my writer's nook as a muse. How could Mesmerize not inspire the imagination and spark creativity)
    Thanks for doing the giveaway, and good luck everyone!

  23. Sylvia, wonderful prints! Clearly, you're the Real Thing. I'm a fellow 12x12-er and would be soexcited to have either print - but it's "Stay" that speaks to me.

    I will definitely be checking out your blog - and your store!

  25. Hmmm . . . Mesmerize vs. Stay???? Both outstanding! If i win, you choice.

    Love your artwork on etsy too :~])
    Definitely going to tell others about your store!
