Remember these little fella's? The beermats I sent into the Inkygoodness Beermat Competition? Well the results are finally in! And I am SUPER over the moon to have been selected! I never expected to even be considered after seeing some of the amazing entries posted by Inkygoodness over the last few months. 50 entries have been chosen to take part in the exhibition. 8 designs were chosen by guest judges and the other 42 by the Inkygoodness team to take part in an upcoming exhibition (details will be released on that in due course). I was super surprised to hear that my designs had been chosen one of the guest judges Momiji!! And I get a prize! I wasn't expecting that! So I'll be sitting by the letter box waiting for it to drop in haha!
This is what Claire from Momiji said about my Beermats:
“I love the way Joanne has embraced the format and structure of a traditional beer mat but whilst also mixing it up with an unconventional use of colour. I love her gentle yet mysterious characters. They are the kind of creatures I’d like to have a brandy with. They look wise.” Claire Rowlands, Momiji
I actually can't wait for the exhibition now! I'll get to meet so many talented people and it will be great to see them displayed in all their glory. Plus Inkygoodness exhibitions are always amazing.
So who else is taking part I hear you cry! Well have a little look at this amazing list!
