Some of you may know about Displa.io, a wonderful new website where artists and photographers can post their work for sell on giant metal canvases called displates. I joined the site while it was in beta, and have a few galleries up of my work. Well, I just learned today that one of my favorite pieces, "Key to the Soul" was chosen to be showcased in Displa.io's first gallery show during the SonArt festival in Barcelona, Spain! You can see the whole collection of artwork that was part of the gallery (including mine) here, and learn more about the gallery at Displa.io's blog here. Click the image of "Key to the Soul" below to see it on Displa.io, and check out all the amazing artwork there. *Also - interviewing with Robin Easter Design today. Wish me luck!
Good news everyone! :) The Hilton Head International Piano Competition holds a contest each year to design the art that will be used in their posters, brochures, flyers, website - basically, al manner of marketing and advertising promotions for the upcoming year's piano competition. This year, there were nearly 50 submissions, and yours truly won 2nd place!
Not only that, but I'll be given a monetary award, and my poster will be shown, along with the third and first place winners, in the lobby of the competition hall this year, and the next.
With the exception of my parents, this is the first time that I've been paid for my art, and it is a real boost of confidence to know that there are clients out there interested in my style, and that making a career is more possible than ever. I'd like to thank the HHIPC for selecting my work and my "getting published" class that provided me the opportunity to enter. It's such an honor.
