Poster Competiton Entry

Yikes!  I’m all a flutter having just submitted my poster to the joint London Transport Museum/Association of Illustrators poster competition promoting cycling as an emerging mode of transport in London…with only 30 minutes to spare.  It didn’t scan as well as I’d have liked so there wasn’t enough time to clean it up as much as I’d have preferred.

This is the first time I’ve ever entered an art competition.   What a relief to have finished!

I’m not deluded enough to imagine that it will be selected as I’m aware that my self-taught, inexperienced work will probably be considered somewhat naive – but it was so worth having a go.

There were some days when I almost gave up but, thanks to some timely words of encouragement, I’m glad I persevered as the experience of taking part was invaluable.  It was educational, time-gobbling, sometimes frustrating and even scary but also fun.

And now I can bask in that warm, fuzzy feeling of having achieved my goal…until I start the next project.

Anyway…EEEEEeeeEEkk!!!
