No Foolin', I win!


I'm very pleased to announce that I have won a Rondo award for 'Fan Artist of the Year'! I can hardly believe it!

Things have been busy lately. And when I say that, I don't mean that I'm getting a lot done, but I have some major projects in the works. One that I'll mention is that I am going to be a featured guest at this year's Wonderfest. I recently completed the art that will be on the t-shirts and some of the printed material, like tickets & badges. Wonderfest is going to be very exciting because I will get to meet Hammer actresses Caroline Munro & Martine Beswick! They will be the first Hammer stars that I've ever met, and I'm so thrilled. In addition, I will be able to attend the Rondo Award ceremony, where I will accept my award. This terrifies me as I'm not especially good at speaking in front of a large group of people. I'll just have to keep it short & sweet!

Got to go for now, lots to do. More news to come...

  1. I'm sure you'll do fine. You deserve the award for your sheer originality in the face of the all pervading realistic work that permeates the genre. Go girl.:)

    It's no joke! (I thought some might think that because of the date I decided to post this). You can click on the Rondo banner to the right to see the winners, I am indeed on it.
