Some time back I entered a competition to win the opportunity to have a ‘moving billboard’ on one of Matthews Coaches for 6 months. This was part of their newly launched Arts Showcase Initiative. Well I can say I was just thrilled when I received a phonecall from Karen at Matthews saying that I was the latest winner of this brilliant prize. It took me a while to get my head around what this meant…. Liz Christy. Hand-Woven in Ireland and LizzyC Sheep would be featured on a bus which travelled up and down the M1 and into the centre of Dublin four times a day!
We set to work on the art work for the design. And while I knew exactly what it would look like, it was truly amazing to see it ‘in the flesh’ when my husband and I went to the launch recently. To see a 71 seater bus, parked outside The Marshes Shopping Centre in Dundalk with my images and branding on the back was unreal and very exciting.
A big big thank you to Matthews Coaches from Inniskeen in Co. Monaghan for this wonderful prize.
