Hello. It seems I’m making this toot-my-own-horn day (sorry) — I don’t usually do this. But, I’m really honored to post that I received several awards at last evenings Society of Professional Journalist’s Gala in Seattle. The SPJ Pacific NW regional awards include publications from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington for work produced in 2012.
The awards below were for Best Illustration or Cartoon in a Magazine. A big thank you to the judges who appreciated my illustration work, and also to our incredible editorial and production team at Scotsman Guide — who are a pleasure to work and collaborate with on these articles. It’s always a challenge to create visuals that will hopefully add a little extra to the articles — but they are also great fun to work on, which makes a difference!
This one was awarded a 1st place. It was published in the Scotsman Guide Residential edition, December 2012. The article is titled: Gazing into the future of the housing industry
The next two received second and third place in the same category. They were for feature articles titled: “Clear a path to close on distressed properties”, published in Scotsman Guide Residential edition, May 2012; and “Saddle up for lending’s ups and downs” published in Scotsman Guide Commercial edition, Dec 2012
You can find more detail and sketch images of these in older 2012 posts shortly after they were published. As always, I do appreciate your stopping by to look at my artwork.
Now, right back to work on the upcoming month’s editorial illustrations…
