Quietly chuffed to have good old "Tulips" (detail seen here) selected by the American Illustration 27 jury this year. First time any work of mine has been accepted by that esteemed organisation! I got the email last week saying that over 7500 entries had been received from around the world and only 294 had been accepted into their disTRIBUTE showcase - these will be published in November after what is to be the party of 2008 in New York - I'd better start saving for that one.
The judges for AI27 were : Paul Buckley, Penguin Group; Stacey D. Clarkson, Harper's; Antonio De Luca, The Walrus; Angie Myung and Ted Vadakan, Poketo; Brian Rea, The New York Times.
Meanwhile, my fingers are crossed for the lovely Damian Mullen at And So it Begins... design agency. I have worked with Damian a few times and the illustrations and logo I did for him as part of his rebranding for Sherpa have been nominated in the Scottish Design Awards on the Corporate Identity category. To be announced on May 16th in Edinburgh.
