I know. Bad blogger. I have been MIA but it is for good reason. A lot has been going on and I'm happy to say that it's all been good!
As you see above I received my award from the Society of Illustrators West. In addition I found out while attending the David Grove exhibit at the Society in New York that I was accepted into 3x3 Magazine's Pro Show! This is so exciting! AND three pieces got into Expose 10! I'm humbled and amazed. Spectrum Live was such a wonderful experience and now all this good news.
It doesn't stop there......I have been notified that I'm up for consideration for a Hugo Award. Here's the blog link. I'm still finding out about it so hang tight until I get more info. Also, Spectrum 19 accepted my "Next Season" and "Patchwork Girl".
On the drawing board and in the upcoming posts....
• I'm finishing up a piece called "Bruno the Brave". If you are connected with me via Facebook you have seen some of the teasers. My projected finish date is in the next 2 weeks. It's a private commission and will be printed, mounted and painted.
• Just finished up a book cover for Rebecca Minor. I can't post anything until the release date which we are both anticipating. I'm excited about it because it's different from most of my work.
• I'm finishing up a Kickstarter campaign that I'm hoping to officially launch this Monday! Yikes! It's a publication on "Animals of History". More info to come.
• In addition I will be taking my moth painting to the next step by painting some embellishments to it for my portfolio.
I also have been updating my etsy store so keep checking for new items.
Now, off to paint!
