here to have a nosey at some really fabulous artwork from 50 artists working across the globe.
…Our brief this time was to create a fun, humanised character for use on a young child's t-shirt and or other child related products such as lunch boxes and children's books. This was so much fun to do, & like my other projects, just involved lots of drawing and dreaming, fermentation and imagination (I hope)…it was also lovely to have more time to spend on this second round assignment than I had on the first…definitely more leisurely!!... and regardless of whether I progress any further in the competition, my piece is something I shall be proud to show in my portfolio…
…But this is the wonderful thing about making it this far in the competition: not only is the work made available via the gallery for the public to make a 'People's Choice' on, but this final 50 are also whittled down to a select group of 5 artists via a STELLAR selection panel of judges…both scary and amazing!!! This year there is representation from such world class companies as Chronical Books, Crate & Barrell, Midwest-CBK, the Quayside Publishing Group, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Demdaco, representation from the magazines 'Where Women Create', 'Uppercase' & 'Real Simple', Nickelodeon, Parsons School of Design, Studio M, Bowie from Print and Pattern, Oopsy Daisy the super-fab children's wall art company, the Hachette Book Group, Blue-Q the uber cool gift manufacturer and finally teNeues (book & calendar publishing company).
…So you see, a Super World Class list of movers and shakers to get your work in front of!…how cool is that? …. so as I say, regardless of whether I make it into the final group of 6 to progress through to the final round (& of course I'd LOVE to), I really feel like I'm a winner anyway! xox
