Gold! Alberta Magazine Awards

A little while ago I received the delightful news that my illustration Alberta Oil magazine won Gold in the Illustration category in the 2013 Alberta Magazine Awards.


AMA Nomination

I just happily learned that I’m a finalist in the the 2013 Alberta Magazine Awards in 14 Showcase. Thanks to the kind folks at Alberta Oil magazine & their fantastic art-direction! Last year I managed to score ‘Best Illustration’ (2012) for another illustration for Alberta Oil — the Great Horse Race — shown below as well.


Best Illustration at the AMA!

Last night while enjoying an unseasonably warm evening & eating gelato I received an exciting — I’d won ‘Best Illustration’ for ‘Due Diligence’ at the Alberta Magazine Awards. The illustration was originally created for the fine people at Alberta Oil Magazine. Woot!


Applied Arts Award!

I just got a spot of good news — a few of my favourite illustrations from this year will be in the 2012 Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Awards. A series of 3 book reviews for the Globe & Mail with the ever great to work with David Woodside made the cut as did a fun illo of a horse race for Alberta Oil magazine with Andrew Forbes.
