A couple of weeks ago, I entered the Tigerprint Competition for hand-lettered type. Tigerprint supplies exclusive cards and wrapping to Marks and Spencer in the UK. They were specifically looking for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Birthday concepts. I took out my india ink, brushes, pens and paper and got busy.

I knew that two of my designs made the top 53 out of 240 entrants (top and bottom—perhaps Eat Cake! was too bossy??) Yesterday, they published the results. While I was beyond thrilled to see my Love design as the top runner-up, it was a tad bittersweet to see they chose no winner, as the entries didn't fit with their line. Alas, I will be getting a great font book as a prize. Back to the drawing board I go….
