Yesterday l submitted my entry for assignment 1 for Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search. Lila Rogers is an agent, in the US, who represents artists, including surface pattern designers.
The brief was to design a cover for 'a gardener's journal' using Japanese Anemones, Staghorn Ferns and the colour 'greige'. I don't think that l have the sort of style that Lila usually represents but she did say, 'be yourself', so l was.
I'm pleased with my entry but there was tough competition from the other entrants, over 2,000 of them! There were some really lovely illustrations amongst the submissions. 50 artists will now be chosen to receive the 2nd assignment - fingers crossed!
