Chesley Nods!

Omar and I have BOTH been nominated for ASFA's Chesley Awards this year, albeit in different categories (Thankfully! We wouldn't want to have to compete against each other!). Omar is nominated in the Hardback Book Cover category, and I'm in the Unpublished Monochrome category. The awards will be presented at NASFiC in Raleigh, NC in August. So those of you eligible, get out there and vote for us! We want to be the first husband/wife dual Chesley winners!!! How cool would that be?

Out in the real world...

We'll be stepping out of our studio and off our little island to head to our old stomping grounds for a day in Providence, RI. We'll have a booth at the Providence Art Festival this Saturday June 12, so if you're in the area be sure to drop by to say hi and see what sort of goodies we have for sale. For more information, click here. To see a list of fellow artisans who will also be there, click here. Looks to be a great festival. See you there!

Here's a little piece I just finished that I've titled "Queen of Hearts".
I was working on this while I was playing catch-up watching past episodes of "Lost" before the grand finale. Anyone notice the influence of the Smoke Monster?
