What a Nice Surprise
























Look what showed up in my mailbox the other day. Published? What? I didn’t submit anything for publication. I was momentarily stunned and confused, but ultimately curious. 

 






















I ripped into the plastic protector and quickly flipped through this newest issue of Art Journaling Magazine looking for something familiar. It wasn’t until I flipped through the second time that I found the page with my art on it.






















The magazine reprinted a page from my Rejectamenta Journal that was featured in the very first issue of Art Journaling Magazine way back in 2009. Now there’s a blast from the past. It was actually because of that article that I started this Lost and Found blog. I wanted to have a web presence like all of the “cool artists” who had articles or artwork published in a magazine.

I guess it's good to take a look back once in a while and see where you started and just how far you've come. I think my lettering has come a long way since 2009. Thank you Art Journaling Magazine for a nice little surprise. Maybe it's time to submit something new and see what happens.
