I'm a star!!!

I just received this nice little star-shaped award at the most recent IABC function. I've been volunteering my photography services to the group, in an effort to help them grow their online presence. In exchange, I obviously put my name and face in front of a bunch of new corporate clients.

The group is the International Association of Business Communicators, and - as the name suggests - it is made up of people in corporate internal/external communication, marketing, public relations, and investor relations. What better group to help out, if you're looking to network with corporate clients?!?

I'm glad they appreciate what I'm contributing to the group, and the award was a nice way of showing it! I don't even remember the last time I received an award. It's so cool...

Wanna be a BRAVO star?!?

I got this off a friend's facebook link. If I was more confident about my fine art pieces and didn't have a family or busy work schedule at home... I might just go try out:

From Bravo's Website:


How do you go from struggling, emerging or even semi-established artist to selling a complete show for $198 million? It’s a big art world out there, but maybe this is one place to start!

Magical Elves (Peabody Award-winning Project Runway, Emmy Award-winning Top Chef) and Sarah Jessica Parker (Golden Globe- and Emmy Award-winner) and her production company, Pretty Matches, are teaming up for an hour-long creative competition series among aspiring contemporary artists who will create and compete to conquer the art world!

If you’re an emerging or mid-career artist with a unique, powerful voice that demands a bigger stage – well. . . Here. It. Is.

We want contemporary artists. Your medium could be one of many (or several of many) – painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography, mixed-media – we want voices that believe in their art and want the world to know.
