We're delighted to be able to say that Andy has been nominated for the World Illustration Awards 2016 in the Books: Professional category for his 'Great Modern Artists A to Z'. Entries are shortlisted if two or more judges liked it or chose it as their favourite and to be picked out of over 2500 international entries is a real honour. You can see all the awards shortlisted entries here: http://www.theaoi.com/awards/awards-shortlist.php
This is the 40th anniversary year of the awards run by the AOI - Association of Illustrators - and they are considered the most comprehensive and significant awards for illustration.
This year the AOI has partnered with The Directory of Illustration, widely regarded as the leading marketing program for illustrators in the United States.
And if you'd like to see all the award winners and highlights from the shortlist, once they're announced, you're in luck as there will be an exhibition at Somerset House in London during the Autumn which will then tour the country. For more details visit the AOI's website here regularly for updates.
