Oh wow I still can't believe it;;;;
I came home after school yesterday to find the email congratulating me sitting in my gmail inbox, and I kind of freaked out all over the place? dfjdfkljdlf (´◉ д ◉ `) I let out this piercing scream and frightened my mom whoops.
This is my third time entering the contest! I entered once in 2009 (half seriously), and once last year [link]
I recieved a runner up prize..
And this year... I actually got first place?! I'm going to be on the magazine cover?! Wah, that's kind of a really scary thought. My work is going to be in the hands of 20k+ people?
As embarrassing as it is to admit this, winning the contest has been kind of a dream for me for a while. I have a hard time believing it actually happened!! It might not be a huge milestone for professional artists, but for me it really means a lot. I mean, I've finally accomplished a goal I've been aiming for a while! ;v;
I already have a table in the Comic Market though, so the free table which was reserved for the winner of the contest will go to someone else on the waiting list probably
Hope to see some of you guys there!
