5th Sci. Fi. Illustration for Ron L. Hubbart Contest

Click on this picture to see it bigger.

Here is my 5th science fiction illustration for the Ron L. Hubbard Writers and Illustrators Contest. I sketched this alien creature in a sketch book with only a pen. I then used the sketch drawing and re-drew it on a large yellow paper, using color pencils. As a surprise, it took one day to complete this work. Yet, I feel I need to work on the rocky hills and aliens' rocky huts behind the creature, for they are a little flat, and the footprints from the alien don't look like they are six-legged footsteps. Henceforth, I will do the touch-ups and eventually scan it and send it to the Ron L. Hubbard Writers and Illustrators Contest soon.

ASL Performance Show at Equal Grounds for DEAAF Fundraising

Here is a flyer I created and you can click on it to see it bigger.

My ASL Poetry Society worked with DEAAF (Deaf Education African Arts for Family) to help them fundraise toward education needs for the deaf/hard of hearing African children. This goal will become a reality on December 14th at Equal Grounds downtown Rochester starting at 7:30 PM. Deaf/hard of hearing performers will present their creativity at Equal Grounds, using sign language (American Sign Language). The tickets will be purchased at the show that will go to DEAAF to send money and school supplies to schools where deaf/hard of hearing African students attend. The performers will be Vicki Nordquist, Matt Schwartz, Eddie Swayze (myself), and Dangerous Signs (NTID students performing art group). I'm honored to become part of DEAAF and their fundraising efforts to make the difference in good cause. I am looking forward to make this become a success as much as possible. I would like you to attend and spread the word, too.
