Happy Days!

Yesterday I was notified that I had won the 'Emerging Talent' category at the Cheltenham Illustration awards 2011. My work was chosen by Oscar winner Shaun Tan and I'm over the moon.

This is the winning illustration 'Fox Tree'. You probably know it already ;-)





















































I also wanted to announce that my work has been published in this beautiful book 'Illustrators Unlimited'  this month alongside greats like Oliver Jeffers, Brecht Evens & Caitlin Hackett / published by Gestalten and available here soon.

'Illustrators Unlimited presents the work of cutting-edge illustration talents scouted from around the world. They are working independently from fleeting trends and represent the best of the virtually inexhaustible possibilities of styles and techniques that are practiced today.


The book is structured according to the featured illustrators. Each one is introduced with a variety of representative examples of his or her work plus a text portrait written by James Gaddy, a former editor at Print magazine. Whether created by established names or fresh talents, the work collected here has been chosen solely for its artistic merit.

The lavish images covering page after page and insightful accompanying texts make Illustrators Unlimited a comprehensive overview of contemporary illustration. The book is a definitive reference for clients looking to commission work, for agencies, and anyone else who is interested in this multifaceted creative medium.'

Congratulations! Incredible news, and to be chosen by such an accomplished illustrator/artist like Shaun Tan (absolutely love his work) is such a great pat on the back. Such a beautiful piece you produced for it as well. Well done!
