I’m excited to join the 100 artists participating in ArtVan’s 10×10 gallery event, opening April 27th and running through to July 30th at Frontier in Brunswick!
This is a fundraising event for such a wonderful program that makes a huge impact in our communities and I hope you’ll check it out. Each artist was given a ‘word’ of inspiration (Bridge, Messy, Emerge, Ignited) and asked to complete a piece that fit within a 10×10 space. My word was Messy, check it out!
I was lucky enough to be asked to design an Odyssey of the Mind t-shirt graphic for the Georgia State champions reigning out of Americus! Americus was lucky enough to have the three placing teams from two schools this year (Furlow Charter School and Southland Academy) and together they’ve formed one unified team to travel to Worlds together where they will compete separately. This creative problem-solving competition requires students to work as a team for months to solve a long-term problem, the fruits of their labor being a collective solution. They present their solutions in front of judges and face off against their peers in spontaneous problems solving events the day of the competition. Pretty neat!
The design features the outline of some prominent town sights and the dragon is Georgia’s Odyssey of the Mind mascot! This will be printed on black and white baseball tees and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with how it all came out! I hope the kids like it just as much as I do!
Congrats to team Americus on how far you’ve come and good luck at the World championships May 23-26th at Iowa State University! (Though I hear a certain somebody has their hometown team heading there too 😏)
