My recipes on TDAC

I am just a little bit excited that both recipes that I submitted to They Draw and Cook have been approved and now appear there on my Artist Profile. This is a great incentive for me to continue creating and submitting illustrated recipes to the largest illustrated recipe site on the www. With a bit of luck my artwork may be spotted by an art director (a common occurrence on the site) and may even result in future illustration jobs.
