Lilla Rogers is all the rage in my surface design world right now. She has just recently launched her first ever e-course, Make Art that Sells, with Beth Nicholls of Do What you Love and it was a roaring success. Now the two of them have collaborated to host a Global Talent Search.The reward for the winner- a 2 year signed contract with Lilla Rogers Studio.
That, my friends, is kind of like winning the lottery in my world.These are two very clever women!
I am still unsure of how many entrants they received for the search, but my guess is over 700. There are many out there just dying for a shot to be represented by Lilla. Yes, I am one of them…
It’s funny because when I signed up for her course I didn’t realize I would automatically be entered into the talent search. I am not sure I would have participated considering I am in the throes of summer vacation with kids. But, after 5 awesome weeks with Lilla and Make Art that Sells I was excited to keep the momentum going and was thrilled to have another mini brief to design around.
The brief for the global talent search – vintage inspired playground. I wont lie-my initial thought was ..ugh..
Once again though, Lilla pushed me creatively to create a piece around a theme I had never even considered. Now, I have a whole bunch of playground inspired motifs to play around with for patterns and upcoming art.
My mind at work in the inspiration stage…
The finished project! I am quite pleased with it.I stepped outside my boundaries, used lots of different medium and even tried some new colors.
I thought it would be fun to give you a little sneak peek at some other playground inspired journals for the Global Talent Search. The top 50 get chosen and published August 1st, but that’s just a bit to far away.I love seeing all the different styles and interpretations.
I have included the artist name below each piece and a link to their blogpost about The Global Talent Search (or in some instances just their blog…lots are taking a breather this week!)

Isn’t it amazing to see all the different interpretations and styles?I love all the different medium used from chalk to embroidery. Lots of look at!
Best of luck to everyone who entered! I will keep you posted on how it all rolls out. It should be very interesting!
