The COSE Arts Business Awards ceremony was last night, and it was quite the shindig.? Amazing event, and incredible people.? And proud me got to see my awards in the spotlight :}
I can’t remember if I actually told you that I got this commission, or if I just said something cryptic like “a cool thing happened!? I’m so excited!!? But I can’t tell you!”? (I’m guessing it was probably the latter, so if the suspense has been killing you, my sincerest apologies and I promise to be more forthcoming in the future.)? Here is the time-lapsed version:
February: Yay, I got a commission!!? But I can’t tell you what it is!? Because it’s a secret!
March: Yay, the commission is to design the 2010 COSE Arts Business Awards!
April: Yay, the awards are done!!? And they look great!? But I can’t show you because the winners names are on there!
Without further ado:
The ceremony was lovely, with lots of wine and fancy people.? I am not one of the fancy people, and probably would have been carded at the door had it not been for my teenage daughter.? After 20 minutes of playing human mannequin, I was transformed into “Barbie does Business School” and passed through security unnoticed.? The “look” included braid-y hair twisty things that are called something that sounds like a French pastry.? Not only did she do the hair, but choreographed it so that if it came out during the evening, with a quick shake of the head it would transform into Long Wavy Locks:
Mike D from Zerolandfill was my “hot date” for the event, for which I was ever grateful.? Not only did I have someone to talk with, but he gave me the pep talk of a lifetime.? The kind of talk that opens eyes and changes lives.? I’d thank him now, but I think it might be more significant to become a rousing success and then say “remember that moment?? That was the turning point.? I owe you big.”
Many thanks to COSE, to Christy at Red Dot for her ever challenging cool new projects, and to my new friends at Liquid Image, without whom the awards would have been just another cut piece of copper.
