Out of over 600 entries, my two works were accepted into this year's Peace Project publication and traveling art exhibition (consisting of 150 pieces). Life was sort of crazy at the time, with starting a new job and other craziness, and I forgot to purchase a book (and they appear to have sold out of... Continue Reading →
