We interrupt our regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you this exciting news!!
I have been selected as one of the competitors in this year's "Young Sculptor" competition (Sponsored by the National Sculpture Society). I have been trying to get into this competition for many years now. Last year i was selected as an alternate, but was not asked to compete. This year, I was once again selected as an alternate and I thought it would be the same as last year - but I just received word that I'm IN!! Only 12 competitors were selected this year, so it's an honor to be one of them. I will be traveling to Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina (where the competition will be held). It's a five day figure sculpting competition, were the competitors sculpt from a live model. I know it's not the standard fare for the commercial work I've been doing recently, but I have a long history as a Fine Art sculptor and it's still a big part of my life and my work, so this is HUGE news. I need to make a lot of preparations since the competition is only a few weeks away, but I'm sure I'll be ready to kick some sculpting ass!!
We now return to our regularly scheduled program, already in progress.
