I sent in my Don Freeman Award application and dummy book yesterday. It feels good to have that behind me now. I had initially thought I would apply with my portfolio, so I spent a couple months re-doing my portfolio. It was a good thing, I needed knew pieces in there. Then, last minute I decided to instead submit a dummy book I have been working on, so re-did that thing up to the wire. I have to say it was great to have the urgent need to work on all that stuff, and it is good to know I can now move on to the next thing!
Anybody else in this same "sigh of relief" state?
