Society of Illustrators 49
Just got a letter from Tim O’Brien, chair of Society of Illustrators competition 49. I feel like I am using up all my luck here, I just won a Silver Medal for Institutional Category !!!!! (Image is not up on the site, as it is not officially published yet.)But, more than my medal, what made me really excited was that as far as I have found out so far, some of the closest people in my life have won the medals this year! I made a doodle of this exciting phenomenon.

Thank you so much judges!
