“Honored” doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel right now after hearing that Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself has been selected as Best of Show in 3×3‘s International Professional Show (no. 12). I never imagined that I would receive such an honor; after 25 years of working as a graphic artist, this is one of the sweetest moments of my professional life. My sincerest thanks to 3×3, the judges, and my publisher, Tin House. I certainly hope this leads to more opportunities for me to bust my tail. I am working on two books right now, and I am optimistic that I will find homes for them. I’m more hopeful about the future now than I have been in a very long time.
