I recently submitted a piece to Uppercase magazine for their "Feeling Bookish?" call for entries. They were asking for self portraits of artists as book covers:
I love Uppercase. G got it for my mom for her birthday last year and she's been generously sharing her copies with me. Each one is so gorgeous and printed on thick luxurious paper...The kind of magazine you never throw away. Basically a lovely book, you get monthly in the mail, filled with inspiration and crafty people and amazing arty things... I could go on. But I won't-- if you haven't already, you should check it out for yourself.
Yep, I know what I'm asking for this Christmas.
Anyways, a few days after submitting my illustration, I noticed it up on their blog! Can you see it up there? You have to look close! I guess I made the short list-- they'll print their favorites in the next issue.
