Society of Illustrators Awards

Hey there - sorry for the lack of updates lately. I have been slammed with work, which I know I often complain about (but which I should be thankful for, because as a freelancer that's the preferable spot to be in!).

A while back some of the concept design work I had done while at High Moon Studios got some nice recognition from the Society of Illustrators in LA for Visual Development: http://www.si-la.org/45/visual.html. I always hate tooting my own horn but I thought I would share. One thing I've discovered as a freelancer is that you do in fact need to toot your own horn if you want to keep working.

This piece won the Gold Award for Visual Development.


This piece won the Bronze Award for Visual Development.


And this piece received a Certificate of Merit for Visual Development.

hey Francis, congratulations for the medals!
Orchestrating a lot of moving bodies in one illustration is very tricky, and you did it very well!
So go on, toot that horn!:-)

I was alone on a sunny shoreby the forest's pale blue lake,in the sky floated a single cloudand on the water a single isle.The ripe sweetness of the summer drippedin bead of every treeand straight into my opened hearta tiny drop ran down.
