Brandon Pursley has been bestowed an honor that many artists can only dream of. His work is being published on the cover of a national magazine. The magazine that will feature his artwork is for the United States Department of Labor, Office of Disabilities.
Brandon is a senior at Madison County High School and a member of the High School/High Tech club. It is through this club that Brandon got the opportunity to compete for this prestigious honor. Brandon said of his artwork, “It took me one night to draw the final draft. But I did five rough drafts before that.”
Artwork is not only a passion of Brandon’s; he hopes to make it a career. He told this reporter, “I want to be a graphic designer or something like that. I would really like to work for Disney.”
Not only will Brandon’s work be featured on the cover of the magazine, Brandon also got a monetary award; a check for $500.
The magazine featuring Brandon’s drawing will be released in Fall 2011.
