Opportunties: Art Giveaway and Illustration Lead

Today we have a fun opportunity to win this 11”x14” archival print done by Mike Ciccotello, titled, STAR SEEKER, on cold press watercolor paper.

STAR SEEKER: You are the key to achieving your goals. No one else is going to do it for you. Find your star and make it shine.

Mike is working to promote his Instagram feed and would love your help, so all you have to do to get in the running for STAR SEEKER is to leave a comment here saying you visited Mike’s Instagram page – clicked and followed him. Of course, you will get additional points for promoting on Facebook, Twitter, reblog, or your other social media channels. You can find him on Instagram at @Ciccotello or use the above link.

The search is on for an artist for David L Harrison’s next book of poems from Boyds Mills. David said, “Just got the word yesterday. No pub date yet but I’m delighted to reach this point. The subject is animals that roam after dark so the artist will need to render realistic depictions to meet science classroom teaching requirements.”


Talk tomorrow,
