Best New Stamper
Rosanna Ortlepp is the Summer issue's Best New Stamper. Her excellent Wild Animals artwork is called "Having a Swinging Time." You can be a Best New Stamper, too. The only requirement is that you haven't previously had your art published in RSM.

Company Features
Mark JettonThe Fall issue includes a story on stamp company owner, Mark Jetton, owner of Deadbeat Designs. Here's an excerpt from the story:

A prolific stamper. A terrific stamper. A fun-loving fellow. A guy who’s quite mellow. That’s not a complete picture of Mark Jetton, owner of Deadbeat Designs, but it describes some of the many qualities he expresses—all of which come in a larger-than-life Texas package.

Mark’s been stamping for longer than he probably wants to admit. His first cover art for RSM appeared on the Sept./Oct. 1993 issue, #71. Close Encounters of the Rubber Kind was the theme and he interpreted it with a madcap mixture of images including Mona Lisa, the Tasmanian Devil, David Letterman, Elvis and The Scream. More celebrities filled his cover art for the At the Movies theme for the Sept./Oct. 2000 issue, #113. Most recently, the cover of the Spring 2010 issue, #167, featured his flying envelopes and dancing silhouettes.

In 2001, he started a stamp company, Deadbeat Designs, that might have the largest selection of Texas and cowboy-theme images west of the Mississippi—probably east of the Mississippi, too. Mark's company can be found at
