Just returned back from a great couple of weeks. Firstly was the annual Stanley Awards weekend in beautiful Coffs Harbour, where I was blown away to receive three awards - including the big one: 'Cartoonist of the Year'. It was a great few days. I learned a lot from the seminars and got to see old mates and meet new ones. I don't have time to do a full recap, but luckily David Blumenstein and Hagen have!
Below is a photo of the Stanleys 2013 winners and special peeps: (from L-R) Glen Le Lievre, Gary Clarke (seated), Tom Richmond, David Rowe, me (seated), Jules Faber, Russ Radcliffe and Peter Berner. I nicked the photo from David Pope - thanks, mate!
After that I joined my family in Nelson Bay for a great, relaxing holiday where we went swimming, mountain hiking, tobogganing, and generally having a good old chill out. It's been a hectic hew years without a decent break, and I feel much refreshed.
But now I'm back and hitting the ground running with lots of fun illustration work, of which I shall keep you posted.
Thanks for stopping by,
