2016 Cottonwood Art Festival

Christopher Alan Smith, the illustrator and owner of Smith Map Studio, was one of the 250 artists selected by the jury panel for Cottonwood Art Festival.  The semi-annual show was held the weekend of October 1-2, 2016 in Richardson, TX.  

This was also the exact date that Texas Monthly released their monthly issue featuring Smith Map Studio.  The two-page interview describes how he has always been a "map geek" and his childhood passion transitioned into a full career in 2008 after he held his first show and made $5,500 in sales.
