A happy surprise - an award

The Illustrators Australia A3 print show is over and I have picked up my prints.

No sales :(

I did however recieve the A3 Show Peoples Choice Award with my print 'Dinosaurs Asleep' :)

illustration of sleeping dinosaurs under a city

A big surprise for me. There was a little box people could drop their People's Choice votes into and somehow an image of sleeping dinosaurs under a city caught enough peoples attention.

So thank you to Illustrators Australia for organising the fine event, and thank you to fine art printers Image Science for sponsoring the award - the print voucher and monitor calibrator will both be very handy. I had Image Science print my A3 artwork for the show - they did a high quality, fast and friendly job, as always.

My Peoples Choice vote actually went towards Gregory Roberts' piece Life in the paddock. A clever beautiful image and totally right-now.

At the opening I found an abundance of excellent work to admire and loads of friendly, talented illustrators to talk to and be quietly in awe of. In particular I had a great time chatting to fellow illustrators Tali Gal-on and Nicole Onslow.

So if you did not catch the fun this year then make sure you drop in for a wine and a squiz next year!

  3. Lovely print - I really like the colours you've used. Great t-shirts too, by the way!
