Work Selected for Society of Illustrators West 48!
Exciting news. Some time forever ago, I entered work in the annual SILA competition and eventually forgot all about it. Cue a pleasant surprise yesterday when a message in my inbox informs me that my print Edward Gorey Eating a Sandwich has been selected! It wasn't my favorite of the series, but it was the most radically improved; I actually just reworked it on top of the original transparency. Guess the lesson here is don't give up on your ugly babies, because with just a little spitshine you can turn that ugly duckling into a prize-winning hog- as the saying goes.
