3 x 3 Magazine Illustration Award Winners!
Huge congratulations are in order this month for the wonderful Shane McGowan, David Dean and Richard Johnson who all scooped up awards at the 3x3 Magazine International Illustration Show! David had three pieces selected for 3x3 Magazine's Illustration Annual 15 - a Bronze Medal for "The Land of Neverendings" and a Distinguished Merit for "The Children of Castle Rock" (both in the Picture Book Show) and a Merit for "Tess of the D'urbervilles" (in the Professional Show). The superb Picture book ‘Once upon a Snowstorm’, also shortlisted for this year’s World Illustration Awards, a political piece about children being forced to flee oppressive regimes entitled ‘Migration - Free as a Bird’ and ‘Spirit of Competition - Tokyo 2020’ - a new artistic and cultural response to the Olympic Games all scooped Merits for Richard while Shane, whose adorable series of images featuring a feisty little mouse called Bronwyn, won a well-deserved Merit! Phew! What a talented bunch!
