Happy News to Share!

I recently entered Lilla Rogers's Global Talent Search competition, and this week I received the happy news that I made the first round cut!

I felt a little shy about entering the competition (so much that I didn't even tell my family until a few days before the deadline!) But I knew that if I didn't participate, I'd really wish that I had. And I'm so glad I did! I'm grateful for the encouragement, and just thrilled to have a chance to participate in the second round.

The first assignment was to create a terrarium-themed illustration suitable for wall art. Here's mine:

You can see the 50 semi-finalists here, and a gallery of all 999 entries here.

Now back to working on the next assignment!
