I had the best day ever on Friday. To start off, my super talented illustrator boyfriend James Albon found out he had been selected for a very exciting illustration commission (which he will blog about soon I’m sure)… Then later on in the day he and fellow illustrator Oliver Ninnis also had their single launch for their band The Well Rested… so there was much celebration all round. And by celebration, I mean tequila. And gin.
Now as much as I love celebrating other people’s successes, you can imagine I was pretty psyched that eve to find out that I have had 3 pieces shortlisted for the Association Of Illustrators (AOI) Illustration Awards 2013! The pieces ‘Brothers‘ and ‘Eternal‘ have been shortlisted in the Book category, and the piece ‘Strategies For Flooding‘ has been shortlisted in the Design category. I was really pleased to have a piece in the AOI last year, so it’s even more exciting to find out that they’ve chosen 3 this year!
Best Friday ever.
