Have you been to Andrea's blog today? She is sharing some amazing accomplishments achieved with her art over the last month or so. She is so deserving of kudos, so please pop over there and leave her yours, if you have not already.
One of the things she talks about is having one of her Metroheads (people she sketches as she travels to her safetyjob each day) published in the literary magazine The Truth About The Fact. The Metrohead was a perfect fit as the magazine was focusing on the urban environment. It was also perfect because Andrea is such a wonderful artist and really captures the spirit of those people riding the Paris Metro beside her each day.
Since she brought it up, I will also acknowledge she is correct in saying I also had a photograph accepted for publication in the same magazine. I am really excited to have this happen for me and excited to be sharing in the same magazine as Andrea. The magazine has two launch parties. One was in Los Angeles in April on the campus of Loyola Marymount University. The other party is in Manhattan next week at the publisher's offices. Now here is another Truth About A Fact, I am going to be meeting Andrea, face-to-face, along with her very kind husband next week in New York City. Isn't that exciting?
This is my photograph which was accepted for publication - A Peek at Prague. This was taken from the castle on the hill above Prague, CZ looking through one of those arrow slits where soldiers would defend the castle by shooting arrows at the enemy through one of these slits in the castle wall. Now in modern times, I used it to capture a glimpse of the city and get the photo published in a magazine. Not too bad for a slit in a stone wall, uh? All photos and images of artwork had to be in black and white for the publication, so I am showing it to you as it was sent for publication. We will be picking up our copies of the magazine next week, so I will share more later.
While I do not have as many art successes to share with you, I can assure you I have been keeping busy with lots of work and lots of prep time for hopeful, future successes.
Everyone have a beautiful and lovely day!
