The good folks at the Society of Illustrators called today and informed me that Whitman Illuminated has won the Gold Medal in their Book category! My heartfelt thanks to the Society of Illustrators. I can’t imagine a greater honor.
The opening reception for the annual book and editorial exhibition will take place at the Society of Illustrators on Feb. 5, 2016.
“Honored” doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel right now after hearing that Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself has been selected as Best of Show in 3×3‘s International Professional Show (no. 12). I never imagined that I would receive such an honor; after 25 years of working as a graphic artist, this is one of the sweetest moments of my professional life. My sincerest thanks to 3×3, the judges, and my publisher, Tin House. I certainly hope this leads to more opportunities for me to bust my tail. I am working on two books right now, and I am optimistic that I will find homes for them. I’m more hopeful about the future now than I have been in a very long time.
Proud to announce that Whitman Illuminated was selected for the Type Directors Club‘s 61st Exhibition and the 36th Type Director’s Club Annual!
Happy to report that a second print run of “Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself” is in the works! Grab your first editions while they last!
