Finally, after a really long wait, I found out that my illustration is uploaded on the Marie Claire Concurso site. Phew! I was absolutely anxious before, checking my mails every now and then. The Marie Claire competition is open to anyone around the globe to submit a fashion illustration under the theme â€˜Ethnicâ€™Â for the Spring Summer trend of 2010. One of the conditions is, that it should be drawn only by the natural skill of oneâ€™s hand â€“ means you cannot use any computer software to create the illustration. There are almost a thousand illustrations sumbitted, and I am representing Maldives-in fact I am the only Maldivian at the moment !Â The winner gets a scholarship to study a summer course on Illustration – Idea, Concept and Image with a 100% grant which also includes accommodation. There will be three winners and their illustrations will be published on the Marie Claire magazine, June and July issue.
Well, hereâ€™s me working on the sketch some weeks ago.
My mediums were pencil and water colors. The inspiration behind my work and how I visualize the â€˜Ethnicâ€™ Spring Summer trend of 2010 is written on my page.
So my dear Famushu readers please vote for me and drop a comment. I need your support to win this competition. A big Thank you for all of you who have already voted! And keep voting everyone!
