Harbor East was a good first festival. My tent and display worked, nothing spontaneously combusted, and I drew a lot of portraits. Now that I have the setup worked out, I’m looking forward to finding more festivals to participate in. I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing Charm City Craft Mafia’s Holiday Heap in December. I have my eyes open for anything else going on around the holidays.
In other news, I was recently interviewed by Ed Ricketts for an article in ImagineFX magazine. The focus of the magazine is digital painting, but Ed was doing a feature on children’s book illustration, and talking to a variety of people. I didn’t get any images in the article, but he quoted me as the “young illustrator.” It’s pretty cool to be in an article alongside the pros.
A few of my illustrations are also about to become cross stitch designs available through Celtic Rose Needlecraft, a small business based in the UK. I’ll post a link to the patterns when they go up, in case there are any cross stitchers reading.
