MY FIRST PUBLICATION!
Well, I don't know if I can actually say I was published, but I guess I will until someone tells me differently. You see, I was awarded a runner up award by Creative Quarterly for one of my paintings (issue 27)! Yippee and Yahoo!!! But since it's only a runner up award it won't be published in their quarterly magazine. It will only be shown on their website. That's okay by me, though. I still think it's a great honor. So be sure to look for it in June at www.cqjournal.com.
The funny thing is, and I don't know how it all happened, but my painting was mistakenly placed under the photography category! Funny, hu?! When Creative Quarterly sent me the CQ 27: Credit Information sheet, they asked me to fill in any missing information which was highlighted in red. I looked it over and noticed the category they had me listed under was photography! I crossed out photography and typed in illustration along with all the other information they were requesting. I sent them a separate email as well explaining the mistake. Haven't heard back from them yet. Maybe they'll revoke my award once they find out it's not a photograph! Haha! But anyway, whatever they decide, it's been fun!
Here's the sheet they sent me!
