I've been part of an exciting opportunity to create a design for a colouring-in book. It was compiled by Fearika Heyns. It was an open invitation to any and all artists to submit an artwork for the book. (Read the press article here: http://www.pressreader.com/south-africa/pretoria-news/20150629/281874412058579/TextView ) Over hundreds of entries 60 were selected to become the content of the book. Twenty illustrators were commissioned to create artwork for the book as well. It also resulted in a collective exhibition held at The Ring Gallery in Lynwood Pretoria last week (20-28 September 2015). The exhibition ends this week, so if you're in the area go check it out.
Below is my artwork displayed at the exhibition:
|The artwork at the exhibition: "Out There", watercolour and ink, 297x420cm.|
I've also interpreted the design on a mural:
|Me and my co-pilot on the project, Kobus, painting the wall.|

It's been a lot of fun!
Oh and the book is available for purchase at most Bookstores across the country. :)
Have a wonderful blessed week.
