IF - Red


Hello everyone! Long time no post. Here's my entry for "Red". The health benefits of drinking red wine. mmmmmmmmmm...red wine....The background is just something I was playing around with. I'm trying to add texture and such. Don't think it fits, but that's what experimentation is for!

I have some good news! This past October, I sent out my first round of postcards. I know from research and speaking to other illustrators that not much comes from th
e first few rounds of postcards. Well, I was contacted 2 weeks ago by a local paper in Madison, WI, called the Isthmus, to do a cover illo. for a story on alternative fuel (they liked the alternative fuel image I had on my postcard). It will be published for this Thursdays issue. Here's a link: www.thedailypage.com

Also, I was asked by Postcard Collector magazine if they could include my postcard in one of their articles! People would send me a SASE if they would like a sample.

So, I feel that I have truly been blessed thus far, and I will keep saying my prayers, thanking Him for the talents He has blessed me with (I'm not a VERY religious person, but I have my beliefs, and I know that people aren't just born with their talents, they are blessed with them). And, no worries. I'm not gettin ahead of myself. I know there is a ton of work to do, but I am very grateful for the work I've gotten so far.

Thank all of you for your support and kind words! It's a blessing to be part of such a nice and talented community of artists. Keep up the great work!

To the disgust of connoisseur's around the world, I drink wine from a straw all the time. Great drawing!
