Press Release: Magazine Cover Art Funds Scholarships


May 2001 – Computor Companion Magazine Cover Artwork by Noted Sandpoint Artist to Help Fund Scholarships

SANDPOINT, Idaho — The cover of the May/June 2001 issue of Computor Companion magazine features artwork by noted Sandpoint artist Diana Schuppel. The artwork was scanned from an original acrylic painting which features a bumblebee happily basking amidst colorful Spring flowers. The artwork was commissioned to accompany an article in the magazine about gardening and computers.

Editor Susan Daffron said, “everyone who saw the original artwork had the same response…it’s wonderful!” Readers in Sandpoint may recognize Diana’s whimsical style from her mural that graces the children’s section of the Bonner Country Library or from her widely praised 1999 Festival of Sandpoint poster artwork. Diana also has created numerous indoor and outdoor murals, set designs for theater and advertising, storybook illustrations, and privately commissioned works.

Recently Logical Expressions, Inc., the publisher of Computor Companion magazine, was asked to donate a prize for the Spokane Public Relations Council SPARC awards auction on May 17. The SPRC uses the proceeds from the SPARC Awards contest and gala to fund scholarships for two to three area college students interested in careers in public relations. Daffron asked Diana if her artwork could be auctioned off during the event. Because the artwork would benefit a good cause Diana agreed and Ward Tollbom at the Hen’s Tooth Studio in Sandpoint also agreed to donate the framing.

Daffron noted that “It’s really wonderful to see how willing people in Sandpoint like Diana and Ward Tollbom are to donate to a good cause and I thank them for their generosity.”

Computor Companion is a free computer magazine that is distributed throughout the Inland Northwest at grocery stores, computer stores, book stores, and other locations in Spokane, Pend Oreille, and Stevens counties in Washington and Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai, and Shoshone counties in Idaho. The May/June 2001 issue is being distributed now.
