Hola! I was so excited to recently make it to the top 50 from almost 1000 entries for Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search (details below). The assignment was based on Sunny and her cafe cookbook, and as she’s a pretty cool babe I was inspired by my local cafe who delivers bread to create a dessert bike bar.
Today is the last day you can vote for my entry – I’m hoping to make it to the top six – egad! If you have a momento and you don’t mind throwing my entry a vote, you can do so right here (along with four more votes – so go get some eye candy!). THANK YOU xxxx
I’ve joined the wonderful community of illustrators taking courses through Make Art That Sells this past year, and it’s been invaluable to push my work, learn more about different markets and presentation and develop friendships with talented artists I’ve long admired who are also taking the courses. So I was thrilled to recently make it into the top 50 for the annual “Global Talent Search” with this entry (you had a fun assignment designing a tea set!). Now I’m busily working on the next project and having a ball, details will be out next week 😬
Excitement brewing as my very first picture book, written by the clever Tania McCartney and published by the fine folk at EK books, is released in under a month. Stay tuned for Melbourne launch details (April 9 at the Little Bookroom) but in the mean time here is our cover!
News just in! The work created for Jolla Baby’s Memoir Cards have earned a highly commended in the Illustrator Australia Awards – so happy to be among the talent there.
It was great to hear that this recent artwork is in the shortlist for the KBR Illustration Comp – I love what KBR do, and it’s an honour to be in the running for the second year. Thanks guys! x
I’ve had a few posts about Big Hearted Business… I like the idea that they are helping people with the important business of “doing what you love, making money and changing the world.” Their next conference is on soon and they are giving away some scholarships, and I (somewhat nervously) have made a video to join the applicants!
You can vote for them here, closing tonight, but also fun and inspiring to see what drives others – a collection of creative people sharing their work.
The clever Yen Magazine are holding their yearly female art awards, I entered this little guy….
I would love you to vote, and check out the amazing talent from lovely lassies around Australia.
Grolsch beer has put together 68 artists, musician, film types with some link to Fitzroy for the mighty GROLSCH GRID 2011. I’m co-creating 3 skateboards, teeshirts and posters with the clever Chris from Arbol. There is a festival of events, launching tonight!
Oooh I am excited to be next week a finalist in the Emerging Artist Award and Exhibition, at the Walker Gallery in Dandenong.
I’ve just started putting my work “more out there”, so it is very exciting to see progress… and I’m really looking forward to see some other work. Should be fun.
Embarrassingly, when I went to hand in my work, children’s book illustrator Leigh Hobbs was there and I introduced myself with the babble that I hoped to be a kid’s book illustrator one day. Fate or awkward!? 🙂
