Good News and What's Up and Coming

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!
