A friend posted on Twitter this morning and pinged me in to a competition that she thought I should enter.
run by themusic.com.au , they asked users to design the cover of their next print edition
- All you have to do is send us your impression of an artist on the current Big Day Out schedule and upload your entry in the Festivals section of theMusic.com.au (then click onto Big Day Art page).
- The prize? Not only will your entry appear on the front cover of Inpress/ The Drum Media/ Time Off, but the lucky winner will also win a pass to the Big Day Out plus CDs by Big Day Out artists. But it gets Bigger and Artier than that! To celebrate the BDO festival’s twentieth anniversary, we are also giving the winner exclusive prints of heritage BDO poster art.
Their suggestion was to run with the ‘handmade theme’ that is reflected in all Big Day Out Promo for 2012.
Instantly I was inspired by Frankie Magazine and their handmade aesthetic.
So I started by doing a watercolour illustration of a jar…
I love the texture and feel that watercolour can give!
To add the Big Day Out artist, I loaded the image into Photoshop and worked some magic….
I don’t really know what they are looking for… but I thought this was a cute idea… having the band in the jar with the label on it… Just like Jam!
