3 x 3rd Time's the Charm for Grasshopper Hunter


I was informed last week that my Boys' Life illustration "Grasshopper Hunter" received an Award of Merit from this year's 3x3 Illustration Annual. This marks the first time one of my pieces has been accepted into three of the major juried illustration annuals after it got into both The Society of Illustrators and Spectrum annuals this year. I only missed on Communication Arts or it would have been a grand slam for the annual shows I entered. Needless to say, I am pretty pleased. The annual will be published for the first time in hardback and I am looking forward to seeing it reproduced alongside the work of so many other talented artists. Congratulations to all those artists whose work was accepted, especially to several of my classmates from the University of Hartford: James O'Brien; Jim Cohen, Scott Anderson, Q. Cassetti, David Brinley and Scott Bakal as well as former student Houston Trueblood. Hope I didn't overlook anyone.
