Winner, Winner, Haggis Dinner to @Joaellaine for her Lithograph Design in the DIA T-Shirt contestWe wish to extend our warmest and most heartfelt congratulations to our favorite artist in residence, Jo. Her design made the final cut for the lithograph design contest which was limited to just the top six submissions. Outlander fans were invited to vote on the final six and voting was limited to only one vote per email address.
Today the announcement was made that Joanna's design won! We canna adequately express in words how excited and pleased we are for Jo, who remains humble in the wake of this success.
We're privileged to have a personal relationship with Jo, who DM'd us the news this morning. "I'm very excited and grateful. Thanks for believing in me." We asked her how she felt and she said "I almost started jumping when I got the news, but I was at work." (We're suprised ye didna let out a wee skelloch!)
Jo's design will appear on the T-Shirts for the second season of the Outlander series based on the books by Diana Gabaldon. Joanna's winning Dragonfly In Amber design is pictured below. Get ready to place those orders soon. We await the announcement from Starz on when the T-Shirts will be available.
As usual, Jo has managed to capture the spirit and feeling of the series in a beautiful artistic representation. These Wee Lasses think it's only fitting that her design won. If ye wish to buy one of Joanna's prints, go to her Society6 page at http://ellaine.deviantart.com/
