Colored Pencil Magazine - Student - Featured Artist

** Horn tooting alert **

I am SO excited and honored to be the featured artist in the Spring/Summer 2013 issue of Colored Pencil Student Magazine

Look, there's my art on the cover. That's my "Answer Your Heart" piece. (They really bumped up the color - in reality, its pretty muted.)

You may click the cover to see a larger view, but the rest of the images here from the article I've made small on purpose. It wouldn't be kosher to "give them away" for free - this is just a taste. If you would like to purchase the magazine, they have both a digital and a paper version available through the website.

Cool, huh? I love how they laid out the article and the art.

You can see a preview of the issue here (although they leave out most of the 'meat', including my piece). Its a good magazine for anyone just learning about colored pencils, with lots of tips and info, as well as illustrated "step-by-steps", and features like mine. If you're thinking about 'getting into' doing colored pencil art, and aren't sure how to begin, this might be one low-cost way of getting started. People often ask me about which books to buy, what paper to use, which pencils, etc. etc. etc., and now I'm happy to be able to point them to this magazine (and no, they're not paying me to say this).

Going off to gloat a bit now.
Oh, forgot to say Happy Spring!
