Fashion Drawing ~ Michele Wesen Bryant

by Grady Echegaray, 26 May, 2011

In January of 2010, I was approached by Michele Wesen Bryant

with a view to using a couple of images of my SL avatar

in a book she was writing about fashion illustration.

At the time, I felt excited, but also that this was likely to be a “fire and forget” situation.

I did not doubt that the book would be published, but was by no means sure

that at the end of the day, my pictures wouldn’t end up on the editing room floor.

In any case I thought, it all may turn out, but even if it did,

it would be some time in the misty far off future.

Well, yesterday that misty far off future became the delightful present day.

Not only was the book published, and not only were 2 of my images used,

but the author and publisher were most gracious and sent me a complimentary copy.

Michele, congratulations on the publication of your outstanding book

and my thanks and sincere appreciation for the lovely copy of it!

(I hope you sell a gazillion! XD)
