Here’s something extremely cool I just received, The Little Chimp Society’s 2015 Award for Excellence. I’ve been extremely fortunate this year to have received this and a few other awards for my work recently. I was also selected to be one of Creative Quarterly’s Top 25 illustrators of 2014. That being said, as I mentioned in my previous post, I don’t do this for the awards or the acclaim (although I’d be lying if I didn’t say it provides quite an ego boost). I mostly do it because art is that thing that, aside from my family, makes me happiest in the world. It took me years to realize that. I’m extremely fortunate to be able to do what I can do and to have received so much praise for my work. So, to each and every one of you who has shown such confidence in me and my work, thank you.
