I’m excited to say I have been blessed to have come away with 2 awards for this years 2012 AZBEE awards — Western Region, presented by ASBPE last week. Both in the best opening page spread illustration category. Thank you to the judges, and also to the Scotsman Guide team who always make it fun to work on these editorial illustrations.
The first one, below, received a gold award for “Is There a Doctor for the House?” The first image is how it looked as a spread, and the following two are detail views.
The next one was for an article titled: “The Case for Sustainability Grows Stronger”. It was a challenge to create artwork for the left-hand page, and also incorporate some green imagery into the right-hand page as well to pull it all together. This one received a silver award in the same competition.
Finally, below is the in-context image of the entire 2-page spread.
