I created the first piece of this collection last year in Lilla Rogers Bootcamp and I am so excited to finally be able to share it with you. A growth chart will be available soon as well!

And to top it off, there are so many of my fellow Bootcamp and Make Art That Sells classmates with new work available as well. Take a look!

We are all meant to Shine.

 

I'm a Semi-Finalist!

Lobster With shaky hands and a racing heart, I checked Lilla's blog this first thing this morning. The list of semi-finalists for Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search was up.

Again and again I counseled myself-- the outcome doesn't matter, I am proud of the piece that I submitted, there were 1500 entries, and the the level of talent was (is?) incredibly fierce.

What really matters is that I put my fears and insecurities aside and gave it my all.

And then I saw it. My name and my submission, second from the top of the list. Check it out.

Global Talent Search Semi-Finalist

Of all of those incredible journal cover entries, mine was one of the top 50! I can still barely breath, and I'm pretty sure my feet haven't touched the ground yet today.

This past week has included some disappointments--I am having an issue with one of my eyes, and yesterday, a line of wall art that I have been working on for Oopsy Daisy was rejected, including my lobster above.

So for today, I am going to celebrate and enjoy this moment.

 

A Global Talent Search

Global Talent Search Entry Part of taking Lilla Roger's class was automatic enrollment in a Global Talent Search. The winner will score a slew of licensing deals (a home decor line, a fabric line, a scrapbooking license to name a few), PLUS two years of representation by Lilla Rogers Studio.

Global Talent Search

Wow.

It would be unbelievable to win.

There are three rounds to the competition. The first assignment was to create a 5"x7" journal cover with a vintage playground theme that  somehow included the word "Journal".

The image above is what I came up with.

Entries were due this week, and 50 semi-finalists will be chosen by Lilla Rogers and her team by August 1. At that point, the talented 50 move forward in the competition with another assignment. Their work will be posted in an online gallery and presented to an esteemed panel of judges from companies such as Anthropologie, Chronicle Books, Paperchase, Real Simple Magazine, Demdaco, Oopsy Daisy, and more. From there, the list will be whittled down to six finalists who will advance with another assignment. Lilla herself will choose the final winner.

It's a long shot.

I have seen some of the entries--the level of talent involved is amazing. Humbling. And that's just from my fellow classmates. The competition was open to the public--there are probably thousands who entered.

I do know this though:

I definitely won't win if I don't put myself out there and try.

So stay tuned. I would be absolutely over the moon just to make the top 50 and get my name and my work in front of that impressive list of judges.

In other news, I'm hard at work at a new line for Oopsy Daisy. And...I am having a gallery show in downtown Denver this fall. Yahoo!! Details to come.
