Today was the Francelia Butler Conference at Hollins University, where I am working on my MFA. The conference is student run and held every year. We are all able to submit critical and creative work to read in the conference as well as submit an illustration into the Juried Show. I submitted my watercolor, The Giant Walks Into Town, and it won Viewer's Choice Award and Third Place Overall! There were some awesome pieces in the show this year and it was stiff competition. I am honored to receive two awards. Thanks everyone!
