"Satan's Murder Machine" wins Bronze!!!

Satans Murder Machine 7.3" x 10.85" Photoshop

I just received an email from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles that my illustration was selected to receive the Bronze Award in the Graphic Novel / Comic Book category in Illustration West 49! This digital painting is the front cover for a graphic novel/novella adaptation of Norvell E. Page's epic SPIDER story (Satan's Murder Machines) retold as The Spider: The Iron Man War that is to be released in April by Moonstone Books! I am doing 33 illustrations total for this trade paperback, including front and back covers, a pin-up, and 30 interior illustrations. The SI-LA Illustration West 49 Show will open at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA on January 21, 2011 and will be up through January 31st. The show will also be online for viewing on the SI-LA website. Right now, I am not sure if I am able to travel to California for the show, but my painting will definitely be there!! I am so excited as last year I received the Gold Award in Illustration West 48 for my Spider illustration The Hunt, and this year I have another Spider illustration that placed!! This is a great way to start the New Year!!
