An even bigger bonus? Seeing my work on a 2-page spread! I can't show you the pages themselves because the issue doesn't hit the newstands until July 1st. However, the table of contents is listed online as proof of their existence. Check out page 26:
Generally, when you submit to a publication, your artwork disappears into a black hole, never to be seen or heard from again. It's best to just send things off and forget about them. Which I did - months ago. This was only my second or third attempt ever - the first for this publication. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that my work would appear in such a wonderful way.
