XFactor 2010 – Part Two
Dannii Minogue Asks for Artwork
Dannii sent me a message saying that she had shown my kangaroo artwork for Ethan to one of her artist friends in Australia who thought it was very clever. She said that she would like a piece of artwork for backstage at XFactor as the dressing rooms are very dull. She wanted the artwork to incorporate the words ‘Team Minogue’. Dannii is known as ‘The Style Queen’ and I immediately thought of the stiletto idea and started sketching. This is what I created:
I tweeted the idea to Dannii and she fell in love with it instantly…there wasn’t anything that she wanted changing. So, I got two 60x60x4cm canvases printed and stretched and I posted them to Dannii at XFactor…on one I put a personal message wishing Team Minogue good luck. I didn’t know what would become of it and thought that might have been the last I heard of the canvas. However…
Name Art is Spotted…Everywhere!
…then the excitment began! The first time we spotted the stiletto canvas was in this photo of all of Team Minogue with Gok Wan:
I was beside myself with excitement and immediately showed all my Facebook and Twitter followers, but then she tweeted a close up photo of the canvas (the one with the website message!) for all her followers to see:
It got to the point where each Saturday, I couldn’t wait to see what Dannii would do next because it seemed that each week she would show it off in one way or another.
Here she is with it in another photo that she tweeted:
For me, the excitement built because, not only did she keep show-casing my canvas, Team Minogue were also doing really well.
After the XFactor semi-finals you can imagine how excited I was when Dannii tweeted this video…it was the stuff that dreams are made of! The video was posted all over the internet and gathered a lot of interest and followers for Name Art.
Believe it or not, Dannii still took it one step further…but find out about that in the next part of my blog!
