Ironclad Art is a competition put on by the City of Vancouver challenging people to come up with new manhole cover designs. As of the deadline in mid-April they received over one thousand submissions, all of which you can view online. Last week I was pleased to learn my work was selected as one of the top twenty-five finalists. Woot!
I chose to create one of my intricate paper cut designs (pictured here), and I would dearly love to see this immortalized in metal. Even if it isn’t chosen as the finalist, it’s still pretty cool to make the shortlist.
As part of the competition there is a People’s Choice award. Please help me out and vote for my design. Winners of Ironclad Art will be announced this Saturday June 1st. I can hardly wait.
