    Article accepted!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Ashleigh, Mar 21, 2010.

    I've just recieved a reply from the editor of an online magazine called MookyChick, accepting my how-to article! :D

    My article is a how-to guide for girls that want to t00n like Tim Burton.

    Who knew my drawing hobby would actually pay off?!

    I will have a photograph and bio next to the article too, along with links to my blog, so this is a fantastic way to start my journalism portfolio!

    This will be my first published piece!

    When it's up, it'll be published in the how-to section here:

    www.MookyChick.co.uk

    Excittedd :D

    EDIT: The article is up! Check it out: http://www.mookychick.co.uk/spirit/creative-tips/cartoonist-tips-tim-burton-drawing-style.php

    Congratulations, Ashleigh!!!

    You need to work on a graphic novel next. :D We just recently had Comicon here in Seattle (Emerald City Comicon, to be exact), and your stuff would stack nicely against a lot of the artists there.

    Thanks guys :redface: I'm not sure i'm quite good enough for a graphic novel, hehe. I'm flattered you think so though!

    And I'm not sure as of yet, Cog, but I shall keep you posted!

    Ash, the toons i've seen you produce have always been crazy (un the beautifuly wicked sense). So it was only a matter of time.

    Well done!!
