Back to the Playground

Monday July 22nd, 2013, 1 year, 4 months and 5 days ago

I’ve just taken part in an illustration challenge held by Lilla Rogers, and here’s my entry! The brief was to create a journal cover with a playground theme, and I really had a lot of fun drawing this. It brought back fond memories of risking life and limb doing crazy stunts on the monkey bars, and tightly gripping onto the roundabout to stop myself being propelled into the stratosphere by centrifugal force from being spun way too fast by my sister – so much fun! You’re never too old to have a go on the swings though, are you?

    Hi Karena, Thrilled to bits to see that you entered in Lillas GTS too! Love your entry! Gorgeous colours and kids. And your background texture is lush. I had hoped like mad to make it into the top 50 too, but sadly no cigar this time. Still makes for a sweet folio piece. :-)

      I just went poking around your site and found yours http://cargocollective.com/inkcaravan/Journal-Cover it’s adorable – I love your style! There were *so* many fantastic entries that I felt really hit the brief that didn’t make the top 50. I certainly didn’t expect to win, but I really wanted to make the list of finalists just to get my work seen by those judges!! Oh well, I’ve already repurposed my illustration as a greeting card design, and I had a lot of fun doing it, so it was definitely worth entering! :)
