"The Hunt" Wins GOLD!!!!

The Hunt 12x5.75 Gouache on Illustration Board

On New Years Day, I received an email from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles that my painting was selected to receive the Gold Award in the Graphic Novel / Comic Book category in Illustration West 48 for my Spider painting The Hunt!! This painting is the 3rd illustration in a series of 10 for the first issue of the first ever on-going Spider series.... The Spider: Judgement Knight #1 - Blood of the Innocent that was released in August by Moonstone Books! Not sure of the details yet, but there will be an exhibition (TBA) in LA and online. I will post more information when it is available. This is not only a great way to start the New Year, but also a great way to start my illustration career as this was my first published work!! Anyone interested in purchasing a signed copy of the comic in a protective sleeve, please contact me as my online store is not yet running.
