I just realized what great honour and privilege it is for me to be a part of this book, even though it's a tiny little image.
Thanks to Leonard Teo and Paul Hellard, the guys who don't just want to make some extra cash, but support us newcomers by expanding our efforts and talent.

Thanks to CG Society and everyone for giving me the chance to be part of this wonderfull book.

Best regards,
