LOUIE Award finalist!!

I am jumping up and down right now because the "Santa Train" card I conceptualized, illustrated, and engineered for the Museum of Modern Art is a LOUIE Award finalist in the category Christmas/Seasonal Boxed Set Above $2.  Hooray, hooray!  If you aren't familiar with the LOUIE it's the highest honor in the greeting card industry.  This is the third time I've been a finalist and I even won once before.  Soooooo exciting!  Okay, I think you get the picture that I'm excited.  If you would like to see all the finalists you can view them here:  27th Annual LOUIE Awards Gallery.  It is quite a remarkable display of greeting card excellence!

Follow me on Instagram

I took the plunge and started an Instagram feed.  I am fully committed to posting fresh, original content for your enjoyment.  The plan is to post a lot of sketches of my art experimentation in hopes that this will inspire others to sketch and grow their style too.  Here are the first three pictures I've posted.  If you enjoy them I hope you will follow along with me.  My Instagram feed is https://instagram.com/marybethcryanartist/ . If you are more of a Facebook person I am going to post all of my Instagram photos there too.  Here is my Facebook feed https://www.facebook.com/marybethcryanartist .  Thank you in advance for following!!
