Reside Housing Association Ltd invited all of our tenants to enter our Tenant Christmas Card Competition 2016!
We were overwhelmed by the effort, standard and willingness to contribute and this year as always, we found it extremely hard to choose the winner. However, a winner had to be chosen and after all staff at our Head office in Kingston had voted, the winner was chosen from Alex S from Nottingham.
Here’s to another great year of illustrations!
Happy Christmas to one and all,
The winning card by Alex S
“I’m from Nottingham and have lived here for over a year now. I’ve been interested in painting and illustrations for some time and the opportunity to enter the christmas card competition came along, so thought to give it a shot. Was very pleased to discover I’d won; my family now have personally designed cards from me this christmas!
The idea kind of drew itself, keeping it simple and seasonal. A Dickensian snowman on the melt looking down at the footprints of its makers now long gone…sobs! Anyway, am glad it made an impression and thanks to Reside for their impeccable taste!
I get a good deal of pleasure from people enjoying my work, and hope to pursue it as a career as not currently working, so fingers crossed and commission’s of my work are welcomed! Thanks.” – Alex S, from Nottingham
