Pheww! On a more cheery note, the Compadres/Oscar Lopez illustrations were nominated in the 'Illustration or Illustration Feature' category of the Western Magazine Awards! I'm in good company - other nominees include my fellow classmate Byron Eggenschweiler, and schoolmate Joy Ang!

I recently got to illustrate a great FFWD feature on the state of the arts & artists in Calgary - which is that it's actually in a state of emergency! Eeep! I highly recommend you take a read.
