My First Silver

NOVEMBER 18, 2009
It's been a very difficult day at the drawing table.  One of those cyclical things when you can't seem to put what's in your mind's eye successfully on a piece of paper.  Then Anelle Miller from the Society of Illustrators calls me.  I'm thinking there's something wrong.  Instead she tells me that I've received a silver in Editorial for 52nd Annual. The bloody hyenas in business suits done for a brilliant article by Matt Taibbi for ROLLING STONE.   I could have thought of many many things that she wanted to call me about, but not this one.   Congrats to Brian and Julia  as well for their awards.  Over 35 years as an illustrator and this is my first award from the Society.  It was worth the wait.  Thanks to all involved.
