We’re loving Gemma’s folky look in the studio today!
Well, it was really difficult to judge as we had some great entries, but we can now announce that the winner of the Five Words design competition is….Tabula Rosi with ‘A Jar Full of Joy’!
We love Emma’s perfectly considered composition, use of colour & hand drawn lettering. Really lovely!
We love the sentiment behind Julia’s beautifully illustrated lettering. Great composition & mix of lettering styles which sit together wonderfully. Great work!
Mandy T Benton
We love Mandy’s quirky design & sentiment – it’s a really nice and original way of saying ‘Congratulations’. Her great composition flows beautifully & is perfectly executed in stitch. Great use of colour to give depth & balance to the piece. Super stitcher!
The judges love Rebecca’s five word phrase & her cute floral illustrations which help to elevate her uplifting piece. Great use of colour too. Lovely work!
Sara Castro Monteiro
We love Sara’s romantic sentiment & quirky illustration style. Great use of colour too. Very cool!
We love the use of scale in Susse’s illustration which really helps to express her gratitude. Great character & paper cut style. Really fun!
We love the idea of ‘A Jar Full of Joy’ expressed in Tabula’s work! Great use of colour, texture & composition in this beautifully illustrated piece. Simply gorgeous!
Thanks to everyone who entered! Watch this space… winner to be announced soon!
I like the graphic simplicity and retro feel to these illustrations by Bristol-based Rob Hodgson…
Books about Town is a series of 50 unique BookBench sculptures which have been designed by local artists and famous names to celebrate London’s literary heritage. Each one is designed to look like an open book and they include Bridget Jones’s Diary, The Wind in the Willows, The Railway Children, The Jungle Book, Mary Poppins, Brick Lane, the books of Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler and loads more! You can complete the trail by following the maps to visit each bench until 15th of September and on October 7th each one is going up for auction with proceeds going to the National Literary Trust.
I love the quirkiness and humor in these illustrations by Mike Lowery…
