I’m very pleased to have taken out the ACA’s Bronze Stan Cross Award for Illustrator of the Year 2018.

Congrats to the other nominees Christopher Downes, Levent Efe, Glen Le Lievre, and David Rowe — as well as all the other talented artists nominated in the other categories. (I was also a nominee in the Caricature category.)

It was a really fun night, and the conference was great, too. Along with all the local brilliant scribblers (too many to name), I got to hang with the great Jeff Keane (Family Circus), and met movie mogul George Miller and storyboard/comic artist Mark Sexton!
