Amazing news! I’m totally amazed, flabbergasted, happy and honestly humbled to learn that as many as eight of my illustrations were selected in the 3×3 Pro Show. Two of them even receiving medals! The Bronze medal for ‘Ballet‘ for the Theater of the City Utrecht and the golden medal for ‘Home‘ an illustration I did for the Annual report of Heijmans, a listed construction company. It was one of a series, another one from that series, ‘Sustainability’ also got selected. Other winning entries were: Apocalypse, Intelligent Highways, Opera, West Africa and Work. Couldn’t be more happy and proud…
Glad to inform you all that the Gorilla on Spitzen is still dancing around the Globe. It has been selected in both competitions of American Illustration (US) and Association of Illustrators (UK)!
I did the characters for this rather dark animatic for the German Theatre Hamburg ( Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg) Also did a series of posters for them in cooperation with ad agency THJNK, and their A.D. Patricia Wetzel. She told me the other day that the animatic made by Deli Pictures received a Red Dot Design Award! Congratulations go to her, the team at THJNK and off course the animators!
I’m honored that the illustration I did for Hohe Luft, a german magazine on philosophy was chosen to appear on the cover of the 3×3 directory of illustrators 2013. It is one of my personal favourites. It was made to accompany an article discussing ‘work’ as means to self fulfillment. Here’s a link to the illustration.
Cool. When I was in New York City to receive the silver medal at the Society of Illustrators I got an email saying two of my illustrations where selected in the Illustration Annual Competition. Again the Gorilla that already had won the medal was selected as well as an illustration I did to accompany an article on the industrialization of West Africa published in Management Scope’s custom content special on Shell’s activities in West Africa. I’m still amazed Shell agreed to publish it… The picture is showing the awards, the illustrations can be viewed using these links: Ballet West Africa
Incredible news! My illustration ‘Ballet’ is awarded a silver medal by the Society of Illustrators. This image was part of a series I did for the Utrecht city theatre created under supervision of a.d. Marieke Griffioen (EdenSpiekermann) You can read more about the project here and see more images from the series here. This is such an honor, I still have a hard time believing it but it really says so on the Society of Illustrators’ website Thank you judges!
I’m happy to announce that my illustration ‘Signs Of Safety’ for Jeugd en Co Magazine received merits in the upcoming 3×3 ProShow!
According to their blog the competition was tougher than ever:
‘Congratulations to all our winners in this year’s 3×3 ProShow! In reviewing the voting it looks like this was one of the toughest shows yet. Entries were up but there were fewer medals this year. Judges were particularly tough on the editorial and self-promotion categories with less than 10% of the entries making it into the show.’
From 8,000 pictures entered by over 1,200 illustrators, magazines, agencies, publishers and schools, the jury selected by a majority vote or better only 439 images to appear in the book and represent the best pictures from 2011. AI31 will be printed in full color and distributed worldwide in hardcover from November 9th, 2012. This year’s distinguished jury included Jen Bekman, 20×20; Steven Charny, Rolling Stone; Mia Song, Men’s Health; John Gall, Random House
