 Fan Art
 
 Earlier this year, The Supernatural Artbook project was founded to allow fan artists to contribute works to be collected and sold to support charities. Now that the project has been fully funded and copies of the book have shipped, artists are sharing their work online. You can find works at the Supernatural Artbook Tumblr.  Example.

 Check out some of the brilliant work our fandom did for this project.
 
 David Hayden Jones and Mr. Ketch caught the imagination of several artists. David compiled a number of them at the ART Mate Sunday Archive.

To get us through Hellatus, we have Supernatural hiatus creations
 
 Their project description: 
Each week will focus on a different theme in the spn universe. these may be characters, places, episodes, quotes, or just overall ideas. the sunday before each new week starts, we will make a post officially announcing that week’s theme along with a few other details (and maybe a few ideas). post your theme-related creation any time before the end of the week (by Sunday at midnight pacific time), and make sure to tag it with #spnhiatuscreations in the first five tags!
