Congrats on your big win! I love the contrasts in your art. This may not apply to you but I'm wondering if your art used neon paints. When I scan in my paintings that used fluorescent paints those colors aren't picked up by the scanner. Just wondering if you knew of a way around this. Thanks in advance :)
