Not sure what category is appropriate for this topic, so I'll put it here.

The local weekly newspaper in Honolulu did a small article on my drawings of bus riders this week. 


Wonder if anyone will recognize themselves! Maybe no one will want to sit near me from now on.

Wow, how fun Mea!!! Which paper? I'll have to get a copy

How'd they find out about your bus project?

Denise,

It's MidWeek, the Windward Islander section only, not the main edition for all of Oahu.

I used to write for this paper and sent one of my postcards to one of my reporter friends.  She did the story.

I'll email you my scan of it

I should have some of my NOAA friends on Oahu come look you up for a back of the head portrait Mea!   This could work out to be a signature for your art career!  Grats!  :clap: :clap:
