Book Winner

Whew! I had over 430 people leave comments on my blog for a chance to win a copy of my new book, Shadows and Shading.

After running a random number generator to find one lucky person, the winner of the book from my blog contest is:

Blogger Eva, who said...

I have been waiting for this to come out and still waiting for my local store to get it in...I sure would love the chance to win. Thanks for coming out with this amazing book!

Congratulations Eva! And congratulations to all the other winners on the other blogs. I know that you will enjoy those books.
This Friday, April 1, from 5:30 to 8:30 I will be once again signing books down at DIVA gallery, 280 W. Broadway, Eugene. I will also be demoing how to use Copic markers, so join us for a fun evening. My artwork is on display through the end of April. Hopefully, this Friday will be a little drier than the last event! You can buy copies of my book, Ken's books, and prints of some of my artwork. I look forward to seeing you there!

Meanwhile, I wanted to let you know about a couple great Copic events coming up in June:

Copic Ink & Art Retreat
Colleen Schaan and Bianca Mandity are hosting an amazing mixed-media workshop the first weekend in June in Indianapolis. Applications have not gone out yet, as we are still finalizing class details, but the class will be open to anyone. This will be an all-day class, specifically for people who want to experiment with Copic markers and make some wonderful, serendipitous creations.

Certification & Stamping Retreat
June 18th I will be teaching a certification in Coos Bay, OR on the beautiful Oregon Coast. If you have never taken a certification, or have never visited the Oregon Coast, then this is the class for you! After the certification, you can register for an evening card-making class with Our Craft Lounge. We'll have lots of fun, all weekend, so if you are interested be sure to sign up as soon as that class opens next month and ask for more details or to get an application.

So, if you are looking for a great vacation in June, then be sure to include Copic in your plans!
