Silver and Merit Awards from 3×3 Magazine!
Wow. I just found out that I received the Silver Award from NYC-based 3×3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration for my piece that was used for the cover of the Jonathan Franzen book. Another one of my illustrations (from the Teknion project) received a Merit Award as well!
