Ooh, have I got some news! (I found out about this a couple of weeks ago, but didn't want to say anything before it was up on the site because I was afraid it wasn't true...) But it is true...someone pinch me!
I was awarded the Gold Award for editorial/book illustration by Portfolios.com!
I am very flattered because they have a lot of really talented folks over there. I'm happy to be in that crowd.
