The Winner

About this design:

Artistic inspiration can come from anywhere, even your pantry! For this exciting partner challenge with renowned art agent, Lilla Rogers, we’re asking you to find beauty in the ordinary objects we too-often overlook.


Think about drawing the lettering on the labels, the shine of the tins, the contents of the tins (if it’s tuna fish, perhaps incorporating coral, shells, or boats). Tip: Be sure to change up the brand and wording on the label to avoid any copyright issues. You can make up your own brands! You might do a whole image of vintage cans, or you might choose to focus on the ingredients themselves. Get creative!
