I was very fortunate to be one of the recipients of the 2011 Stratton Foundation Scholarship earlier this year. But it didn't stop there, the foundation was also kind enough to purchase a piece of my artwork during this years CCS Student Exhibition Opening and interview me for their scholarship podcast. The interview is now online so if you are interested in listening then CLICK HERE to visit the Stratton Foundation's podcast page.

Last May, the College for Creative studies held its annual Student Exhibition show at the end of the school year. It was a huge hit and great to see all of our stuff on display. Posters, prints, and pieces from Dark Circus as well as some independent work was up for sale. I was so honored to find that some of my work actually sold! Doug and Kaoru Stratton of the Stratton Foundation purchased a signed print of the Dark Circus Promotional Poster with accompanying ink line art and Carrie Lezotte from One of Us Films purchased a collection of caricature prints depicting my classmates.

Dark Circus is still on a mini hiatus for the mean time. (I needed a vacation!) It's really hard to get back to business when you keep finding way to make yourself too busy to animate. The job/internship hunt is still underway but I do promise that some wonderful prospects are underway for the future.
