As of late all I’ve been doing is working on submissions one after the other. I’m doing something that I used to shy away from and that was entering them. Times have now changed. I now believe in my work, credit myself (which I believe is important) and look for challenges to help me improve.
This new submission is for Absolut. Absolute is known for its natural ingredients and iconic Vodka bottle. Artists are invited to design a premium paper bag, inspired by one of the seven iconic cities listed in the brief; Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul, Brisbane, Auckland and Dubai.
You can submit up to 10 artworks. I’ve submitted one as time was running out fast. My city of choice was Dubai. For my design I looked past the modern high rising towers and opted for an open, desert landscape.
In each submission/ competition I have done something slightly different. For this one I added a couple of coloured layers to the silhouettes. This is something I’ve been wanting to practise for a long time. I’m pleased with the result and hope to continue to add more styles.
