Winner of Folio Society / House of Illustration 'The Outsider' Competition!

I can now report that I have won the Folio Society / House of Illustration 'The Outsider' Competition - v v pleased! I needed to keep it hush hush for the last couple of months which has been v hard, now I can tell the world! The prize was a commission to work on "The Outsider" by Albert Camus. Had a great launch and prizegiving evening last night - thanks to everyone who came! It was great to meet the other shortlisted illustrators - Chungwoon Choi, Georgina Hounsome, Anne-Marie Jones, Joseph Melhuish and Alenka Sottler, as well as Quentin Blake who was one of the judges and presented prizes. Here are a couple of the images from the book. More from the book on Heart website.


  1. Lovely work well done. Glad I didn't go in for it now - couldn't possibly compete!

  2. Thanks ever so Sheila. Hey - I love your head egg-cups - might be able to afford some soon!

  3. Thanks Martin. See you in Hastings one of these fine days.

  4. Excellent illustrations. They certainly suit the mood of the book. Deserved winners.

  5. Wow. Absolutely fantastic. I am probably your biggest fan.
    If you did a signing I would be there. Ha.
