I forgot to ad this to my last rant. For all of you other paleoartists out there, that feel we don't get enough respect, I have avenged your tears of shame.
Although I only received an honerable mention in bronze, I won best of show at the Utah State Fair in the professional sculptures, all other catogories, with my feathered Utahraptor. I won a huge pink ribbin, an engraved chair, and 25 whole dollars.
I will be bringing my winning raptor, complete with her huge pink ribbin to SVP. It will be at my dealers table, along with the rest of the stuff that I have been hacking out for the past few years.
