Awhile back I was one of the few selected for winning a student scholarship through the Society of Illustrators. My piece called "The Meeting", which is one of the embroidered pieces of my series that I've been doing for my senior thesis. Yesterday was the reception where all the pieces were displayed and I was awarded the $1000 "In Memory of Lila Dryer" Scholarship. I can't wait to start using this money to pay off my student debt! Hope my sarcasm was accomplished through that sentence. But other than that I truly am thankful and blessed from this experience because never in a million years I would have thought any of my work would be up in the Society of Illustrators. I remember working on that piece at my friend's place because I was evacuated from my apartment due to Hurricane Sandy and really not thinking anything of that piece. My piece, along with other student's works, will stay up until June 5th. I really recommend coming out to the exhibit to look at everyone's work because honestly, there's some real badass work and I can't believe they're all from students!!
I will end this post with a cute drawing.
