i've been so excited about this post! here at last is the list of jurors for the happy birthday party contest:
before this website was born, christine and i were portrait partying alone on our living room floor. she is the person who suggested these contests in the first place and, all year long, she has peeked over my shoulder to be the first person to see your portrait swaps. i once heard a saying: "behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes." christine is mine.
danny needs no introduction here because, if your blogs are to be trusted, a lot of you found your way to this party through the one that he started with Everyday Matters.
kerstin was the winner of the last portrait party contest and a fan who has kept this party going since the moment she burst through the door.
penelope dullaghan (portrayed above by herself)
penelope is a pal, a dynamite illustrator, and the founder of my favorite internet art project, illustration friday.
ted and angie are the finest of art connoisseurs; the founders of the art network, poketo; and the friends with whom i co-created the wallets that two lucky contest winners will receive.
tommy is an ad man, a fantastic artist, and the brains behind the portrait party website.
hopefully, all of you are as excited about the jurors as i am! feel free to leave comments for any or all of them but, please, no bribes.
