Giving Michigan a good name!

Yesterday 48 finalists were announced for the AIGA Detroit Wish You Were Here contest and I am so happy that my drawing of Nickels Arcade in Ann Arbor is one of them. Michigan residents were asked to submit images of your favorite places in the state in postcard format to combat the negative press that so often comes our way. AIGA, the professional association for design, is a national non-profit with chapters throughout the country and the 25 Wish You Were Here designs with the most votes between now and March 9 will be printed as postcards to be mailed to these other chapters to show the world who Michigan really is.There are some fantastic entries and individuals are allowed one vote per day. Cast your vote now!

  3. Thanks, guys! No, BE — I plopped myself down on the ground right in the middle of the arcade on a miserably rainy day!
