Frinton Press - call for submissions!

Do you recognise these patterns by two of my favourite illustrators? If you recall, the top one is by Melissa Castrillon, whose work I showed you here, and the second by Thereza Rowe, my star artist for the big 500. Both lucky artists were picked to design a sheet of wrapping paper for Frinton Press's 2009 Wrapping Paper Project.

I was really disappointed that I missed out on this booklet of 16 limited edition designs, which apparently sold like hot cakes...

The Wrapping Paper Project proved a great success and London-based Frinton Press are once again calling for submissions. They intend to launch pre-Christmas in Autumn some time and would like all artwork to be submitted by 30th April. If you're interested in taking part, you'll find the full details on their site here. The finalists will also have the opportunity of selling some of their other artworks, so thinking caps on, pens to the ready, et un, deux, trois, partez!
