Instagram Challenge

Join our Christmas Instagram challenge 2017

I can't quite believe it's a whole year since the last Four Corners Art Collective Instagram Advent Calendar Challenge.

Last year, there were over 1,800 posts to our hashtag #adventcalendarart and some of those designs have since been licensed or bought for a variety of products including greetings cards, doormats, stationery and calendars.

This year we've picked a theme for each of the first three weeks of December and will be posting daily prompts for people to follow.

If you're an artist, we'd love you to join in and encourage your artists friends to do the same. It really is a fun way to fill your portfolio full of seasonal designs. And who knows who might be watching!

And if you're a buyer or art director, follow along for a daily hit of seasonal art everyday from December 1st until Christmas Eve.

Visit Four Corners Instagram for all the details...

An Instagram Christmas

To help get into the festive swing of things I'm joining in with Lucie Sheridan's 12 Days of Christmas Instagram challenge. We'll be drawing and posting Christmas imagery under the hashtag #12daysilloxmas

Over at the Four Corners Art Collective we're organising our own countdown to Christmas with an advent calendar challenge. You can follow us and join in yourself at #adventcalendarart. We're kicking things off on November 30th.

Here's a sneaky peek at my contribution to day 1...

Hope to see you there on December 1st! #adventcalendarart

I'm part of a new global art collective

I am so pleased to finally be able to announce the birth of Four Corners, a brand new collective of surface pattern designers located all over the world.

There are seven artists in the collective, including me, and we met in class on the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-courses run by Make It In Design. Each of us has our own distinctive signature style but we're united by a love of colour and pattern.

We're kicking off our exciting new venture with a festive-themed Instagram challenge - check out the details on the Four Corners website and join us if you can. 

In May, four of us will be exhibiting at SURTEX in New York. If you'd like to fix up a meeting while I'm in New York for SURTEX, please contact me. I'd love to see you!
