It's hard to believe that the Summer holidays are almost over and school starts in just 2 weeks. I must admit I was rather surprised when I noticed just how long it's been since my last blog post. I have however, been rather busy quietly fitting in creative time over the last few weeks. I entered the Global Talent Search with the wonderful Lilla Rogers and although I didn't get through to the shortlisted 50 for the second round, I did learn so much in the process. The assignment was to produce a tea cup, saucer and napkin with hand lettering, here's the piece I submitted and a close up of the design on the tea cup.
In the lead up to receiving the first assignment we were given a series of 5 preparation exercises. The first 3 of which were packaging research, colour palette inspiration and an illustration of the letter 'S'. My letter 'S' is of sweet williams, sacred symbols and a cosmic serpent.
The 50 finalists produced some really amazing work, check out the gallery here: https://www.facebook.com/LillaRogersGlobalTalentSearch/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1078343725585673
The second assignments are due in this Monday 29th August at which point the judges have to pick just 5 finalists with a 6th being chosen by the voting public. Very exciting, can't wait to see what they come up with.
