Honorable Mention

Well, I just got a call that my artwork didn't win the Danish Festival poster contest but they are giving me "honorable mention" and want to use my art for the back of their booklet (the winner is used on the cover). So, now I can post my entries:

The color version, colored pencil on paper:

The black and white simplified version, colored pencil & art marker on paper:

Both entries side by side:

If you live in or near Greenville, Michigan you can see my artwork on display with the other entries for about a month starting April 1st, 2011 at the Huntington Bank downtown.

Art Teaser

I just submitted an entry into a poster contest. The rules state that the submission should never have been published before, so I won't post the entire image until after the contest has finished. But, here are a couple of glimpses of my two submissions. I did a colored pencil drawing and then a simplified pen & colored pencil version in black and white. The picture of my colored pencil drawing ended up a little blurry, which I'm not happy about because if I win, the poster becomes their property...I am, of course, hoping that I win! :)
