A pretty little giveaway: wattle you win?


I'm often 'giving away' a lot of calligraphy and lettering information here on the blog, but have never given away a prize. Today, it begins. Giveaways giveaways giveaways! A wattle giveaway, to be precise. How exciting! At this year's South London Lettering Association's exhibition — themed 'celebrations and festivities' — I'll be exhibiting a celebration of my Australian heritage with two floral prints. Featuring Callistemon Citrinus (Bottle Brush) and Acacia Pycnantha (Golden Wattle), these two A6 pieces combine watercolour illustration with brush lettering and calligraphy script.


I'm really excited to be exhibiting for the first time and wanted to share it with you, not just the description, but the real life, real deal original artwork.

Your golden ticket to the golden wattle

In this wattle giveaway, I'm offering the chance to win not one, but two!, original A6 hand lettered and illustrated print of Australia's national flower, the Golden Wattle.

All you need to do to win is fill out the widget below. The competition ends on 25 September 2016.

It's worth noting: as I try to be a calligrapher with a conscience, this artwork has been created on exceptionally high quality paper (300gsm cold pressed watercolour) that I have reused after trialling another artwork on the other side.
