World Illustration Awards 2021 Longlisted Artist
During the first COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 I was commissioned to illustrate a gin bottle label for Batts Hill Distillers. Utilising the strong, masculine brand colours my brief was to create a magical illustration with a sundowner feel, capturing the essence of Delano and Bradley's friendship of neighbours, shared stories and fun celebrations into ‘A Taste of Friendship’ to offer their customers.
I am delighted that the illustration has been selected by the Design, Product & Packaging category judging panel to be included on the World Illustration Awards 2021 Longlist! There are 500 entries on the longlist, chosen from over 5,280 entries, so this is a wonderful achievement For me :)
“We are presenting the Longlist for the 2021 World Illustration Awards following an extraordinary 18 months. Illustrators have proven their ability to adapt, and respond in the midst of social, political and economic upheaval. This longlist offers an overview of the great illustration that has been created since January 2020 and everyone from industry professionals to the general viewer will find something inspiring, uplifting and thought-provoking.”
