Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles CFE Poster

I was asked by this year's Chair, Steven Hughes otherwise known as Primary Hughes to create a the Call For Entries poster for the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles 55th annual competition.

I've been included in many of the shows in the last 10-15 years and as a capper last year, I received a Gold Medal for my painting for Tor Books/Tor.com. To be asked to create the poster for this year's competition was a nice surprise and an honor.

Steven asked me to create the art just before I left for a trip that had me away from the studio for a good part of a month. I had free reign to create whatever I wanted. This was great because I had a lot of time to think about what type of image I wanted to make. I created a piece that was about the judging process itself. The omniscient judge mysteriously selecting pieces in a harsh landscape of possible failures.

Thank you Steven and the Board of Directors at SILA.
