Spectrum Entries

UPDATE: I didn't get into the book. It is definitely disappointing, but I am hopeful that some of the work I am doing THIS year might be accepted. You win some, you lose some. I am currently working on a book and some exploratory paintings throughout this year. Here's to next year!

Like a lot of artists, every year I submit a few images to be considered for entry into the Spectrum annual illustration book. Like a lot of artist, I have yet to get into the book. The book is a badge of honor in the art world, and so it is worth trying. This year I decided to enter this small series of paintings I did, all digital, of fairies I painted last year. My fairy series always come out of sketchbook musings and aren't necessarily attached to any particular project, just a bit of whimsy.

Here are my entries. Here's to hoping I get in!
