Yipppeee! I made it! Ever since I set eyes on TheyDrawandCook.com and it’s sister site TheyDrawandTravel.com, I’ve been ga-ga about them, and I’ve wanted to be part of both sites. In fact I’ve given in to temptation and pre-ordered the book. I couldn’t resist, it’s like a portfolio of over a 100 gifted artists’ styles, AND it has recipes. It’s one of those things, ‘I’d love to, I must, I must, I shall…” that never happen because there’s always something more important to be done.
Well, luckily for me, TheyDrawandTravel.com had a competition for their map illustrations and like all good competitions that came with a deadline. Thanks to my advertising background I guess, I can only work to deadline, so suddenly there was no ‘maybe soon’ to this. It just had to be done! So I sat hours past midnight over 2 days and managed this just in time! Whether it wins anything, – WOW, that would be totally awesome! – is by the way, but I’m glad I got it done, and I’m fairly pleased with the outcome. I must say though, that drawing a map was a lot harder than I thought it would be, because of the size and possibly since I chose to hand-draw in pen and ink, rather than in a digital style.
Now to get down to another, probably a recipe this time, I’ve got heaps of scribbles done already. I guess I only need another deadline.
