I'm a published illustrator!

I have had one of my drawings/paintings printed on a book cover! This makes me a published illustrator! woohoo! 

This image was created last year at a landscape sketch workshop with Karl Gnass. (He has another landscape workshop coming up again in April). It was a detail study of a very twisty tree with interesing bark patterns and branches. 

When my coworkers saw the image, she thought it would work well for one of the cover projects she had and it got selected as the final cover. It just came back from the printer recently and it was great to see something of mine in print that I didn't get printed myself.
