Keep doing work and it will get noticed sooner or later...

Great news! Wednesday afternoon I was notified that my work, The Aviator, was chosen for inclusion in the American Illustration 30 competition. If you remember, I had previously included this image and a description that it was done for Frank Cost, our Dean in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at RIT.
     It really made my day. According to the notification, my work was one of 185 chosen out of over 7000 entries this year.
     I seldom work on projects I feel are worthy of submitting to Illustration competitions but I thought The Aviator had the lift to get off the ground, and it did.

I also want to let you know that I have given my web site a bit of a face lift. You can get to my site from the navigation bar above or just click here. This is based on a lot of new information I've been reading lately. It's surprising what a little activity can do to get people to look at my work.
      I've added quite a few works that many people have not seen in a long time, or maybe have never seen. There are two new categories including some of the work I've done for Educational projects and those done for Scientific/Medical projects as well. Over the last few weeks of work on this new iteration of my web site, I had the opportunity to look back over the past couple decades and discovered that I've done a huge pile of work for some really great clients. During the upcoming weeks I plan to add one more category for the Corporate work I've done -- be watching for it.
     So, I'd be real happy if you could take a look and let me know what you think.
