Love & Happiness according to Dolly & John

This month I had the chance to put my creative skills to use in a non-professional capacity by entering a competition set by a young London-based artist by the name of RYCA (pronounced Rye-ka).

The brief was simple: depict “love” and “happiness” using 2 symbols (he used hearts and smileys in his work).

I took my inspiration from the music world where Dolly Parton once famously sang “Love Is Like A Butterfly” and John Lennon penned the somewhat controversially titled “Happiness Is A Warm Gun” for The Beatles.

I was picked as one of two winners and was given a free “Love & Happiness” print by the artist for my efforts!
