…I finally managed to get to London to visit the two exhibitions containing my work. The Prize for Illustration at London Transport Museum in Covent Garden (show runs until September 3rd) and The World Illustration Awards at Somerset House (show runs until August 28th).

…New cover and internal for Bulletin Magazine.
We all expect in 2017 for physically disabled persons to be able to easily access public buildings and people who are blind, partially sighted or have hearing problems should also be well accounted for, but people who have speech and communication problems aren’t offered an equal amount of thought and care. At present there isn’t an Internationally recognised ‘communication access’ symbol, so over the past year the RCSLT have been working with the ‘Stroke Association’, ‘Communication Matters’ and others to consider and develop a possible symbol for communication access.

…Following on from my recent Bronze Award in the Prize for Illustration 2017 and being shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards, I am proud to announce that 2 further pieces have been awarded with Honourable Mentions in the latest 3×3 ProShow.
The first, Back-Up Plans was completed for Harvard Business Review.
Secondly, this Poster for the IH8War.com campaign – the ‘Power of Love‘, a huge thank you to Charles Hively and Sarah Munt and the judges of the Editorial and Posters sections respectively.
…An update to the previous posting – I’m extremely proud to announce that I have gained the Bronze Award for my entry to the Prize for Illustration 2017. I’d like to thank all of the judges who voted for my work and ranked it amongst the overall winners.
Unfortunately I couldn’t make the show due to unforeseen circumstances so I’d like to say a very special thank you to Sarah Thomson, Head of Art Production from Ogilvy for speaking on my behalf and for her very kind words in support of my work.
The following photographs have been sent to me from the Private View/Awards Ceremony by the AOI.
…At last I can reveal the wonderful news of my successful entry to The Prize for Illustration, jointly organised by the Association of Illustrators and Transport for London. Making the show as one of 100 exhibitors from over 2000 entries is a great achievement and I’d like to thank all of the judges.
This year’s theme, ‘Sounds of the City’, required an illustrated interpretation of urban sound, my image titled ‘Sound of the Underground’, pays homage to our cities’ wonderful street performers in all their guises. I’m really proud to say that this is my hat-trick – it’s the third year in a row that I have had work accepted and exhibited into this show.
The exhibition opens to the public on 19th May at the Transport Museum in Covent Garden and runs until Sunday 3rd September. There are several special events planned which can be viewed on the website including a very special ‘Friday Late’ event this Friday evening to mark the opening.
