The last few weeks, I've been taking photos, sketching ideas, and trying to get a working idea.
Surprisingly, I got quite upset about the state of some of the playgrounds near where I live. Some are lovely and lots of kids use them, but others are hardly used, the paint has faded, the ropes look like they're going to break at any moment... It's such a pity!
After sketching ideas for the past 3 weeks, I still wasn't sure what I wanted to draw. And with one day to go, I knew something had to change!
I finally decided to try something new today, using my acrylics and just doodling in paint.
And then, I figured out what I wanted to really illustrate! Having an idea really is the biggest buzz you can get! I was literally jumping around, well worth all the stress!
My favourite part of the playground as a kid was definitely the swings, and trying to go as high as possible to see as far as possible in the horizon.
So without further ado, here is my entry

I was so happy when I finally realised what I could illustrate!
Since I've submitted my work I looked at what some other people have entered, and there are some fantastic entries! I didn't want to see any other people's work until I'd done mine though, as I would have been completely stuck I think!
Did you enter the competition?
