I'm thrilled to be receiving the Hamilton King Award tomorrow night at the Society of Illustrators Book & Editorial opening. It's a great honor and I'm both humbled and proud to join the roster of previous recipients.
Apologies for reposting these images. They are from a series of portraits of writers, musicians and actors for a book called "On the Snap" by Brian Case published in the UK.
