I just found out that I won Gold for the third year in a row from the Richmond Illustrators Club's 2009 Annual. The crazy thing is that I also won the Silver award which I didn't know was allowed! The very awesome illustration master Marshall Arisman was the sole Juror this year and supposedly really liked my work (or maybe I bribed him? You'll find out ten years after I'm dead). The winning pieces were Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army and Jan's Cats.
Thanks RIC and Marshall Arisman!!!
