CLIO Awards...

I recently found out that my illustrations for JWT Melbourne for the IFAW Anti Whaling Campaign had won Silver and Bronze in the CLIO Awards 'Print' category! There was also a silver award at Adfest earlier in the year for the same and they were shortlisted for D&AD as well which was pretty cool. Congrats to the guys at JWT especially @HarshKapadia9 who i dealt with throughout the job.

Coming to Town...

Coming to Town is the title for a new joint show of works by Nom Kinnear King and Xue Wang. They are putting on the show at the London Miles pop up location of 65 Hanbury Street in London. This looks like a really good pairing of two great artists from the UK. The show only runs from the 23rd to the 27th June so make sure you have a look before its gone!

Paint it! Make it!...

I was recently asked by the awesome Stephen Chan to get involved with the Paint it! Make it! party for Japan. Its being put on by Illustration Rally (and friends) and looks like it should be a great event! 'Live drawing, origami, cakes and zine making where you can bind and customise your own zine with the work of some of the hottest illustrators around!' Everything raised from the event goes to the Just giving Tsunami appeal. Heres some more details:

If youre on twitter help spread the word with the hash tag #paintitmakeit and make sure you have a look at the main page on Illustration Rally for the artist list and more details on whats being planned. Heres the flyer- after the event i will also post up my contribution for the zine.
