It's A Shape Christmas - A Sneak Peek

Recently, I was very honoured to have been chosen to submit for this year's It's A Shape Christmas!

It's A Shape Christmas is an interactive advent calender, in which 25 creatives (illustrators, typographers, designers and photographers) are each given a particular shape to work with and give a Christmas slant to it. Each day a different creative's piece of work is revealed. There's a very cool video with more info on the It's A Shape Christmas project, created by Made By Shape and produced by Beata Sawka here.

SO very honoured to be featured alongside such talented people!! They've all set the bar very high!

The Made By Shape team have also done such a sterling job on the design of the website - so functional and beautifully designed! Go check out their site for yourself!

Here's a sneak peek of a piece of my submission - I had so much fun creating it!

Can you guess what shape I was given and what I illustrated for it? ;)

I'll keep the full image a surprise until I have been featured on the website - they've actually kept our reveal date a surprise for all of us involved, so I'll wait in suspense with you! So very excited to reveal the final piece!! :)
