Last weekend, I spent a rainy couple of days in Atlanta, visiting SCAD with my former roommate, Yuko Shimizu, and expert draftsmen Eric Canete, and Andrew Robinson. The facilities were spacious and impressive, and it was great to see that a group of students from Savannah drove up to see us. Many thanks to the faculty at SCAD for their hospitality, and to Rick Lovell for making it all possible.

In other news, I found out that I won "Best in Show" for the cover to Fables 67, and a Gold Medal for the cover to Fables 66 for the Spectrum 15 annual. This was quite a surprise, as I didn't enter those covers myself, but it's great to be honored again!
