Last week I discovered that my scratchboard "Green Eyes" was featured on the cover of the current FADP magazine. It was also the first project to be featured in the mag, as well as my name being mentioned in the Editor's note and a picture of "Green Eyes" also shown under the Stockists page. Scratchboard is certainly gaining in popularity down here as I have now had quite a few scratchboard projects published.

It was a complete surprise and I had no idea it would be on the cover, this is the second time my scratchart has appeared on the cover of one of the Aussie magazines and not knowing...a couple of years ago I discovered "A Mother's Love" when I went to the newsagent for something else at the time, to walk past the art magazines and there it was. Seems it is common practice down here not to pass on the good news and to keep it a surprise.

I think they should have given you a "heads up" but, wow! Good for you!

Awesome news Judy!! Well done.

I've had the same experience with Drawing and Inspiration and when I spotted my own work on the cover one month without having a clue about it. Also seeing my articles reprinted in other magazines with no knowledge. I have no problem with them doing it though it would be nice to be told in advance. I once had to be told by a friend online and another way I found out once was by an unexplained spike in visitors to my website - so I checked the magazine stand and sure enough, there was my reprinted article from two years before.

Congratulations to both of you and of course publicity is great for our art form but good heavens, don't they have to get permission to use your copy righted work? Without permission you have no control over where it can appear.
Judy, both pieces are, of course, stellar and it's altogether grand to have the recognition.

TJ, although it's still our copyright, I guess we've signed an element over since Judy and I have both been published in the particular magazines before with the same article. They are simply reprinting them since I suppose they don't always have enough material for a monthly mag. The surprise is that a cover is a lot of kudos and it would be nice to know when our work is appearing on a cover, but when they do an article reprint, they don't tell us so we end up finding out by chance. I suppose they think we should be subscribed to the magazines that we write for but...you know :lol:
