Well, I could hardly sleep last night knowing that the 1st round assignment for The Global Talent Search would be emailed to me (and countless others) in the morning. Pretty sure even when I was sleeping I was dreaming about it, too! Due to confidentiality all I can say is that I was "briefed to create a playground themed journal cover as if Paperchase were my client." So there you go...a playground themed journal cover. As worried as I was, I am in total LOVE with this assignment. It's going to stretch me as an artist and I am looking forward to that. I want to try to stay away from photorealism and create my own little joyful world. Submission is due between July 9 and 22 and I can't wait to get started! I will definitely be blogging about the process as I go. Happy Monday, everyone!
