I am incredibly honored to say that I've won first price in the Best Amateur Comic Book Artist competition held by the Dutch Comic Book Museum in Groningen with my one-shot comic Home.
I honestly didn't expect to win, especially after I saw the other entries I was up against. The level of talent was very high this year.
I attended the price ceremony in Groningen with and yesterday and the judges said very kind things about my comic.
I won a lot of lovely prices.
I got to attend a workshop where I got lots of very information about the profession of comic book artist. I got a stack of free comic books, as well as a publication with all the contest entries in it. A weekend holiday for 6 people. And my entry will be on display at the museum for a year.
Again, this is an incredible honor, and, I hope, a step forward towards my dream of making comics professionally.
Thank you MangoGloor Kell0x and marpie for your friendship. I couldn't have done this without your support. Let's all make our dreams come true!
