Hello Friends! Yesterday, I submitted my entry into Lilla Rogers' 2013 Global Talent Search and would love to share it with you.
A colored pencil drawing on 9" x 12" acid-free drawing paper. It took many layers to get the colors to pop just so. I used Adobe Illustrator to add "Journal" at the bottom. All-in-all, the entire process from start to submission took about 13 hours.
The most challenging part of this assignment was deciding where to place "Journal". I went back and forth between putting the letters on apples in the tree, carving it into the tree trunk, flying it in a kite in the sky, drawing it in the sand or putting rocks with letters in the sand. I ended up not doing any of those and added it digitally. Why? For starters, I was concerned I would ruin the whole drawing if I wrote it in and I wouldn't be able to use this drawing for anything other than a journal if it was a permanent part of the artwork.
There will be 50 entries selected come August 1st. Best of luck to everyone who submitted an entry. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
