Ritter Center House Cover

When I finished my house I spent a fair bit of time adjusting this photo in photoshop. I deleted the background and made it white, fixed the proportions so it looked in perspective and even added a drop shadow. I thought that this would make it easy for it to be chosen to be included in some promotion of the event. As an artist, one of the fringe benefits of doing "volunteer" work is sometimes getting your name out there in addition to helping a cause you care about. When I was in the hardware store in town the other day I saw a stand of these publications which featured my house on the cover using this same photo that I had created earlier. There was a pretty good article about the project and some of the various houses that are being displayed around the Bay Area. Unfortunately the publication didn't credit my name with the work in the publication. Oh well. It's all still pretty great.
Here also is a Channel 2 segment the local news did on the project.: http://www.ktvu.com/video/22712153/index.html

I do wish you had been given credit. Your image makes a strong cover.

It's not a big deal- probably an oversight but it just shows you how hard it is to promote your work!

Nicholas,

I met you a number of years ago when I and a friend, Cheryl Newbern visited your studio. I admire your work and very much enjoyed the watching the progress of the Ritter Center House via your blog. I think as an artist, sometimes I've found it hard myself to put "oversights" into perspective. And I agree. Promoting one's work is work is just that-work!Thanks for putting it out there.
