I've been wanting to post this for a little while now but it kept slipping my mind beneath the piles of paper, pencils, brushes and ink. But now that I've recently emerged, temporarily of course, I've finally gotten around to it.
This is a little something I won at the 19th Annual Juried Exhibition at the Art Institute & Gallery. The piece this award is attached to is an illustration called Too Expensive (if you take a glance above at the header there's quick snippet of it) and was done for a book from Alterna Comics. Great people and books over there. If you have a moment you should check them out. Good folks for sure.
Of the awards and acknowledgments I've taken home in the past I have to say this one here I'm truly proud of. Not because it "placed", which it didn't, but because it was a People's Choice Award, which means a lot to me. It wasn't a favorite piece in the mind of the judge but instead that of the people at the show themselves.
This struck a cord with me and I'd like to send out my sincere appreciation to those who came to the exhibition, enjoyed the piece and voted for it. Thank you.
I've now got a nice emerald green friend that hangs out with me everyday on the wall next to my desk.
