Congratulations to all the winners of the Wacom contest. Although I didn’t get a new Wacom tablet, I feel like a winner myself as I have learned a lot just from joining my first graphic competition.

Finally, I found the time to continue with my artwork last night. “Happy People” I think will be the title of this piece for the Wacom Lifestyle Contest.
