"Bedwetter" Wins 1st Place Illustration/Fine Art in Xto Awards

I woke up this morning to discover that my pretty ice cream blondie won 1st place in the Fine Art/ Illustration category of the Xto Image Awards
The 1st and 2nd place pieces will be exhibited at Farmani Gallery in New York - July 9-16, where the grand prize winners will be announced. The jury consisted of a great assortment of people; Robert Berman, B1 Gallery, Los Angeles, Drome Magazine, Italy, Jugular, NYC, Max Magazine, Italy - so I am stoked - it's a nice vindication that digital art is just as "real" of an art form as a painting thank you very much :)

We just got back from the Seattle Erotic Art Festival and we really fell in love with that city!
I've posted on Female Persuasion about a few of my favorite artists and performers from the show. It was a fun - and interesting!- experience. I've never taken part in an event 'erotic' in nature, even though I've been drawing naked girls for years. 'Bedwetter' was definitely on the more subtle side, which is not something I would have said about this piece before. It was also an exercise in conquering some fears! I was able to go up to the obervation deck of the space needle and I also was able to form some coherent sentences when interviewed about my piece on camera at the festival :P Hurray!

i took these photos nearby the seattle exhibition center and at the pike place flower stands which were incredible!
