I'm sooooo excited today!!! I wanted to share this good news with a while ago but I preferred to keep it a secret until I saw it.... and yesterday, I did!!!! (Keep reading, mom!)
Several months ago, I was interviewed by Rice Freeman-Zachery for the Artist Portfolio of Somerset Studio Magazine. I couldn't believe it at first. It was like a dream come true!!! I've always admired a lot the artists they feature and I never thought I was going to be one of them! I was so excited knowing that my name would be on the cover! I didn't even hoped that my art would be on the cover, because I've seen that usually what is on the portfolio is not what is on the cover. But imagine my surprise when Jenny Doh contacted me and told me that I was on the cover too!!!!!!! I almost fainted!!!!! And it was a real surprise when I received my issue. I hadn't seen a preview... I didn't even knew what piece they had chosen... and when I opened my bag and removed the white paper that is on front what did I see?... Not one, but TWO of my Fridas in there!!!!!!!! (Am I using a lot of exclamation signs? It is because I'm so excited!!!!!!!!).
This is my first cover and I'm very grateful for it. 8 pages with my work in one of my favorite magazines is more than I could have asked for. Thanks so much Jenny and Rice and all you work in the magazine. It's been great working with you!!!
Oh and for the ones asking, the 2 Fridas in the cover are already sold, but there will be others in the update. Prints are already available :)
Have a great day!!!
