Well, I did it!  I just hit “SUBMIT” and my entry for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search is off for review!  I have that feeling like I did back in school after you work really hard on a test or paper and hold your breath as you turn it in – then let out a huge sigh.  I have to admit, I’m surprised by how excited I got by this experience.  I feel good about the my submission.  I know the competition is stiff, but I feel proud of myself for taking a leap and giving it a whirl.  The process was really invigorating for me too.  It was just the motivation I needed  to get into the studio and dig into a fun project.  And worst-case-scenario, I’ve got three new portfolio pieces out of it.   Yes, I know. You can only submit one piece, but I ended up doing three as I worked through my ideas to find one that felt right.    The full assignment is confidential, but I can tell you that I was briefed to create a playground themed journal cover as if Paperchase was my client.  Here are the pieces I did:

Playground1

Playground2

Playground3

I’ll let you guess as to which one I actually submitted.  😉  I’d be curious to hear your feedback.  This has been a great learning process…. And it’s even got me thinking about some new artful pursuits.  (More on that soon!)  Thanks for reading, friends!
