I've entered the Spectrum contest for a chance to get into their Spectrum 24 Art Book.  And I am scared, to be honest.  I don't compete for much.  Well, most things.  But you have to compete.  There are a lot of artists in the world, and standing in the corner, hoping that someone is going to notice me is not going to get me work.  Which sums up my time as a convention artist succinctly.  And a part of my failed attempt at a comic book career.
