Big Fat Glossy THANK YOU!

As I mentioned in the last post I started a Kickstarter project to fund my residency in Iceland this year. The project closed last week 146% funded, yes that means OVER funded. This was a wonderful experience for me, and it was such a boost of confidence to see support from friends, family, and even people I’ve never met before. They get my deepest gratitude:
