Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2015

This past weekend I attended Spectrum Fantastic Art Live, and was incredibly honoured to receive a gold medal for my piece ‘Fake It Til You Make It’. To be recognised for this piece in particular means a lot to me, I still feel like I am “faking it” sometimes, and that illustration is this magical thing I can’t believe I get to do. Thank you so much to the judges, and to Jon Schindehette at Artorder for including the piece in the Artorder Poster Series.

The whole weekend was an amazingly inspiring experience, it was lovely to chat with friends new and old, and to see so much amazing art. I am already counting the days until next year!
