3rd Place for "Jungle Babies"!


My latest (and greatest) news: I've just recieved an email from Editor-in-Chief Virginia Grenier at Stories for Children Magazine informing me that I've won 3rd place in this year's Preditors & Editors Reader's Poll for Best Magazine Cover Art for their May 2008 issue! =) 


I actually tied for 5th place in 2007's Poll for "Thanksgiving Teddy", featured on the November 2007 issue of SFC. Moving up a spot or two makes me more confident that my work has gotten better - at least by a bit - over the past year. =)

My congrats to the other winners, and I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me - for their support, readership, and confidence in my artwork!

Recently I have not posted because I am working on a few things I can not show yet. So it's great I had a reason to post today, so many of you don't start wondering where I've vanished to. =)
