New Timelapse

After a long night slaving over a hot laptop or 2, with a whole bunch of help from Mr Danni Coy, check out my all new timelapse of Amy Jane :) The orginal is heading to Sydney as part of Les Petite Fours at Friends of Leon Gallery in Surry Hills, to which I was invited by the folks at Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.
Enjoy :)

Cover Artist and stufff

we all know I was awarded Grand Champion of the Pastel Journal Pastel 100 comp :D. Apparently that wasn’t awesome enough and they felt they needed to put me on the cover, and publish interviews and such.

Here’s some links :) <—- link to the mag <—- part of an interview with me <—- little video preview of the winners of the comp.

Woot ^^

So this happened...

Hi David,

I think it is early early morning in Australia so I am choosing to email you instead with this great news: Your pastel, Cassandra, has won the Pastel Journal Grand Prize Award in the 15th Annual Pastel 100 Competition. Congratulations! In a field of approximately 2500 entries, that is a fine achievement!

You’ll receive a check for the prize money ($5,000 USD), and of course you will also have a feature in the April 2014 issue of the magazine.

Once again, congratulations. I am eager to share your outstanding pastel in our magazine!

All best,

Anne Hevener, Editor

I received this morning the following email.

Dear David,
I am glad to inform you that you are the winner of the front cover of International Contemporary Masters Volume 7.
