Every year my school takes part in a regional art competition which includes the other schools with in the region, so about 5 schools took part. just over 100 pieces of art spanning over 4 categories. I've been working on a design packaging box for the gallery, then i randomly suggested to my art teacher if he would like to see my art i do at home. Showed him them online, and he asked me to bring in my Assassins Creed Connor and Bear a2 tinted charcoal work to school to put in the gallery. We framed it up with a black background, white edge then black frame and it looks quite awesome.
So on opening night, my fellow school mates and i saw and examined the others work. Then came the announcements of the winners of each category. I had to represent the people whom couldn't make it to the opening from my school, and it turns out a good friend of mine won top of his category and won the best work of the entire gallery, so i got my photo taken a few times of others thinking i was him even after i told them otherwise.
Anyways, about half an hour after the prize givings, my mates and i were talking out side and the organizer of the event told informed my that i was the co-winner of the drawing section, i was over the moon of this as i had not expected this after seeing the other great works. Then my teacher came out and informed me that the announcer guy had red the art numbers wrong, so instead of saying 62 he red out 02, therefore making someone else win and claim all the glory haha.
But anyways i found out i was the true winner of the drawing section. They're sorting out the prize and photos and any other stuff hahaha
Heres the link to the winning piece: tommydrawgames.deviantart.com/…
Later this week i'll get a picture of my work in the frame in the gallery.
