2008 Already Sucks!

(via presurfer)

I´ve been wanting to exchange portraits with Rama Hughes so badly. Along with Tommy Kane, he is my favorite illustrator. This is the second contest which was held at the Portrait Party. I was runner-up in the first contest and this time I thought I wouldn´t even find the time to join. But the last days of December I suddenly had the time and a lot of partners to exchange portraits with.
And now I´ve made it!!! Woo hoo! You can´t imagine how emotional and teary-eyed I was when I read the post announcing that I had made it. I could hug the world.

I can tell you is that this is a wonderful way to start 2008 and nope, 2008 doesn´t suck. In fact this contest really made my year! :) New Year´s Eve was great too. Maybe I´ll post that later.

BTW: Here you can check out all my portrait exchanges for The Portrait Party!

when you are ready to swap portraits, you can find a bunch of pictures of me right here. i found a few of you on flickr already but, if you want to post some more, please do. as soon as both of our portraits are done, i'll post them on the portrait party and mail the original to you.

When I saw that 2008 sucks already badge, you had me worried! I must take part in the Portrait party some time this year, I keep meaning to, but never get round to it. Happy New Year!
