Win a Life Hands You Lemons Print

Now that we have one in our mitts, the Lemons print (which has been featured fully here) looks truly fantastic! They were designed by Gill McColl and are flying off the shelves if you are lucky enough to get one! Deeply Impressed’s first competition, is for the prize of an unframed When Life Hands You Lemons letterpress print, as beautifully printed by Blush Publishing.

To be in with a chance of winning this great print, you will need to come up with your own take on a modern proverb! We have it on good authority that the ones that are Christmas themed, and humorous may well be the ones that are looked on more favorably! As a very cool second prize, the winner will also have their selected proverb turned into a print by Gill. And if that wasn’t enough, you will also get a copy of that print as well! Triple prize!

    When life hands you lemons, create a complicated fiscal device which allows you to grossly overvalue the lemons. Then when your grossly inflated lemons cause a global financial crash, go to the government and demand enough lemons to buy a large house and a yacht.
