Who wants to go to LA?

Thanks for your votes. The Oliver illustration won. I got an email saying it was in the top 25, so looks like it will be in a gallery show in Long Beach. I'm pretty happy, considering how many people entered and the talent at IllustrationFriday.

Here's a link to read more about the contest. The show opens on November 3 and goes to January 20.

The coolest part is not only can I sell the Oliver picture, but 25 prints of my other stuff. I feel like Navin R. Johnson when he got his name in the phone book; "Things are going to start happening to me now..."

Open Oliver

I did a picture of Oliver for IllustrationFriday that I would like to win a contest with. If I win, it gets to be in a gallery called "Open" in Long Beach.

To vote for it, you go to the Illustration Friday Link Viewer and follow these instructions:
To vote, you need to log into the forums with your username and password. (If you don’t have an account in the forums, simply click on the gray star next to the participants’ entries and it will take you to a signup page.) Then click on the Link Viewer to choose faves.

You are allowed only 5 votes. After you choose your 5 favorites, you will not be able to vote anymore… so choose wisely! :)

I wish they made it easier. Oh well. Probably noone will vote for it once they see they have to login. It's free, and they dont spam you. But still, it takes about 5 seconds, which is more time than I usually want to spend on a website.

It was fun to do anyways. Oliver is fun to draw, because he's always so emotional.
