This years first round of the GTS is finally upon us! We received the brief two weeks ago and deadline was today. A journal cover which included; Japanese Anemones, Stag-horn Ferns, Hand Lettering and an optional figure. I've been hidden away, immersed in creative bliss and enjoying every minute of the process and am pleased to have a new piece of work for my portfolio. Meanwhile, the results of the first round will be published on Friday, along with the gallery of entries which promise to be a feast for the eyes. There are only 50 artists chosen to get through to the next round and the standard of work is just incredible, I have been genuinely blown away as my Instagram feed fills up with visual gorgeousness. The judges are going to have a difficult task ahead of them, I certainly would find it very hard to whittle down. This is the stuff hopes and dreams are made of and I wish all of my fellow artists, many of whom are friends, the best of luck as we all hold our breath and wait until Friday!
