illustration "norfolk" eco bag competition
a local eco-bag company have asked artists to submit illustrations representing norfolk, as part of a competition. with these illustrations, they will pick the best images to be printed on the bags they sell!
it has been limited to three colours only! i recently visited, and was fascinated by, a norfolk basketry exhibition. the tradition carried through basket-making was quite admirable, and i really wanted to do some work based on that! i thought that with the bags being eco-friendly, i would portray a very natural feel with greens and recycled paper! norfolk is a very green county, and although norfolk reeds may have been more appropriate, i had to go with grass, simply for the colour and nature of the image!
