Hey's Loren and I want to give a 'SHOUT OUT' to entering the Lilia Rogers GLOBAL TALENT SEARCH!  This is a contest that the winner receives  two years agent representation and a whole host of licensing deals.  The contest runs with a initial brief or summary of a project and when completed, 50 chosen artists move on to the next round.  After this, 5 artists are chosen to move into the final phase where one lucky winner wins the grand prize on October 9th!
The theme for this 1st project was 'Little Terrariums'.  This is where I was to design a piece of wall art with this theme.  I have to say that this year's 1st round was a challenging one.  For starters, I have not been feeling well and I have been very tired and I had to work under some stress, however, I managed to get the assignment completed.  I can't reveal the finished project until the 50 artists are chosen on August 26th  so you will have to wait a couple more days.  I can give you a sneak peek at some sketches, however the final design for this round is under wraps.

All throughout the project, I was uncertain if I was heading in the right direction, but something told me to keep going, so I did.  I created my design in cut paper and mixed media and I am excited about the way it turned out.  It took a lot longer to complete than I anticipated, so I am glad I started right away after being given the brief through email.  I had a lot of details to include and I didn't want to leave anything out, so this is why it took somewhat longer.

Here are some snippets of sketches to give you an idea of what direction I took the assignment.  The final image will be posted after August 26th so check back in a couple of days.  Wish me luck!!!
