Great news! I won the gold medal in the society of illustrators competition this year in the Un-commissioned category. Here is it's virtual medal:
The piece that won the award is 'Ebb& flow' which was made as a personal project. This is really a great honor, especially since this award was previously given to some amazing artists. I've been going to the society for years, either for exhibitions, lectures or sketch nights, and its really amazing to find out that they decided to pick me as one of this year's winners. There will be a gallery show featuring the selected artists sometime in early january as well as the annual book that will come out sometime in 2011, so I will keep you posted on the info once I get it. Ok, now back to the drawing table!
(The print will be displayed in the show... sans this lavish golden frame)
