Gold in 3x3 Professional Show No. 8
Found out my "Memphis to Boston" piece won Gold in editorial in the latest 3x3 Professional Show
This piece has also won Silver in the Society of News Design and 2nd place in the AltPick Awards.
Which made me feel good, especially since I had done 28 color studies, and probably a half dozen compositions for that piece!
I also received a distinguished merit award for "Evolution of China"
Which also made me feel good, because I painted it completely once, wasn't happy and trashed it, and started over on it. Which at the time bummed me out, because that was alot of hand painted hairs to throw away.
And a merit award for "Dodger's Divorce"
