Recently the Terrestrial Manager’s & Madrona Group headed up a San Juan Island License Plate Initiative and sent out a request for local artists to enter the design contest. So after a bit of pondering, I selected eight images and mocked them up for the design contest. Here are the images and the plates that I submitted.
And the original images.
It’s a petition process to get a new custom plate approved so the San Juan Islands will need 3500 signees to get the ball rolling (click here for more info). When you sign up you can pick your favorite plate design. Currently the display and sign up forms are at the San Juan Island Farmers market. So while it would be a hoot to have one of my images grace our local license plate, I expect to see an image from one of the fine artists over on the “big” island. But I sure had a blast thinking about and preparing images for this idea and I sure hope it comes to pass.
So if you find yourself on San Juan Island during the Farmer’s Market, stop in, sign the petition and choose your favorite plate.
