We can't let this Illustrators 52 love fest die so here are my pieces that have been accepted into this years show. I must say that I am as humbled as inspired by the support that the society has given to my work and all of the other Drawger work accepted. Getting the call from Kate Feirtag and Tara Jacoby yesterday was very cool, thank you.

A slew of terrific images there, Richard. I particularly like "A Hidden Agenda", but they're all beauties.

As the proud owner of Pretty Polly which hangs in a nice spot in the dining room, I can only say it will be a pleasure to bring it to the Society for the show.

Seriously though, congrats man. Those are awesome works - you're clearly at the top of your game.
