Got The Call



Follow your heart. After many years of being a bystander to the annual shows, but an SI supporter nonetheless, I doggedly submitted what I love best to illustrate: reportage. This year, two of my pieces were accepted into the Institutional Category as part of the Society of Illustrators 52nd Annual. They are part of the project that I recently posted, A Sneak Peek. The chop in the corner represents the interpretation of my name, and translated, means "sing." Fitting since, when I draw on location, I do feel like I am singing to the world!
