Welsh Artist of the Year 2009 - Tim Freeman
An article in BBC news announced the winner for the Welsh artist of the year. I've never heard of the award but found the article interesting regardless. The winning image is a digitally rendered drawing by Tim Freeman using Photoshop, the image beating out 500 other entries in the competition. Read the entire article HERE. See more images of other award winners HERE. I couldn't find a website for Tim Freeman however there is another article on the awards HERE.
