(Winning) Finalist Illustrations!

Holy Crap! I won!! I really, actually, honest ta Buddha, won!!!
Cal-i-forn-ya, here I come. . . .

Okay . . . time to be more professional about all this. . . .

Here’s a link to the press release. “It’s a major award!” 

And big time congratulations to the other winners, Fiona Meng and John Haverty. Their art is amazing.   Check it out by clicking on their names. Blows away my own “doodles.”

In any case, here’s a look at my finalist-winning entries for the internationally acclaimed Illustrators of the Future Contest. All three were done using drawing pencils–I believe B, 2B, and perhaps the occasional touch of 3B. “Musty” (from Musty Davenport in Purgatory) is the demon who visits Woodstock in my short story, “A Devil of a Time.” Tilting at Martians is an illustration for a comedic scifi novelette of the same name. And Attack of the Rabid 12ft Rutabaga is an illustartion for yet another of my still-looking-for-a-publisher novelettes: “Bunny’s Lucky Slipper.”
