In case you hadn't already heard, I just won the Cartoonist Studio's 4th annual "So You Wanna Be A Cartoonist" contest! Thanks to everyone who voted and who has been supportive, especially my parents, in-laws, and my beautiful wife. I'm pretty much obsessed with cartooning, so it feels good to have my work recognized. Also, a shout-out to the other extremely talented contestants. They all did an amazing job, and definitely didn't make it easy for me. :)
I'm a little overwhelmed by all the good news I've gotten this week. First, I got accepted into the Graphic Design BFA program at school, then my gorgeous little girl was born, and now this. How many good things can happen to a guy at once, huh?
Here's the official announcement: http://www.thecartooniststudio.com/contestwinner.aspx?Month=apr2013
