More scratchboard related news: I received confirmation yesterday that my application for "Signature" status (SSA) in the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA) has been unanimously accepted. This status is awarded to ISSA "members showing advanced scratchboard skills" and I'm thrilled and honored to have been approved. This means that I can now add "SSA" after my signature on scratchboard works.
Although ISSA is a new group, it is made up of very talented, professional and enthusiastic members who are working diligently to promote the fine art of scratchboard. If you work in scratchboard or just want to support those of us who do, I encourage you to consider becoming a member.
I'm looking forward to the first ISSA meeting and exhibit in July of this year. And now, I can include "SSA" on the drawing I'll be submitting to the exhibit!
