Thank You, CA
So grateful to the judges at CA for including my work this year. Very privilaged company as usual. Standouts, aside from the Great Ciardiello and Edel pieces that are here, there are Bill Mayer's postage stamp inventions, Heidi Younger's Am Mask, Ellen Weinstein's amazing "The Unbelievers", Victo Ngai's Beast Labyrinth, Gaddafi by Chris Gall, Tim O'Brien's creepy The Island of Doctor Ivanov, Brian Stauffer's startling Hair Raising Effect, Serge Bloch's eloquent Et Avant (And Before) and Gary Kelly's powerful World War I Christmas book.
Mine include this opener for a piece for Rob Hewitt and Conde Nast's Traveler. Writer Pico Iyer sailed on his first cruise and was surprised at how much he liked it. It turned out that I had been to some of the same places and was able to use my own snapshots as scrap!
But I doubt it.
I don't feel sorry for Newt. He still has Shelley Adelson who can always find him work at the craps table in Vegas. I weep for the illustrators of the world who will now be stuck with Romney, who you can draw by looking at Legos. Well, anyway. Thanks CA.
