Annuals

Great news from Communication Arts and American Illustration. Two images will be appearing in American Illustration 27, and one in CA Illustration 49. From the pair that got tapped for AI, one of the images selected is from my 'Drawing in Church' series, which is really wonderful. I'm excited that more people will get to see my pew-based work. 

It has been an unusual annual season for me. All 6 images selected by the three major shows are different- usually there is at least one drawing that gets multiple nods. It shows how unpredictable juries can be. Ultimately, it is 12 Angry Men (read universal 'men'), and you hope Henry Fonda has got your back this time. Two of these three were done for Christianity Today. They'll be getting roses later this afternoon.
