Second Place


2015 AFDCS Cachet Maker's Contest

Category 1 - Hand Drawn / Hand Painted

First Place



Winner of First ICCA Cachet Contest

The newly formed International Cover Collectors Association - ICCA held a first ever "On-Line" Cachet Contest this past month.  The cachets were to be made for the 2016 Lunar Year of the "Fire" Monkey.  My entry was voted to a tie with another very fine cachet design entry and won in the "run-off" voting!

Wanting a "Fun" design I of course thought of the "Evil Monkey" theme... with a twist! 

These guys did such a poor job at NOT seeing, hearing, and speaking that they were "FIRED"!
