British Phonographic Industry Award

A strange text popped up on my phone today, informing me I’d be getting a delivery from ‘Award Framers’. I had no clue what this was about but as predicted, the package arrived and I opened it to find…

Wow! I was genuinely shocked!  A British Phonographic Industry Silver Record Award.  I don’t tend to put too much stock in awards but I just held it up, staring at it, smiling but completely baffled!

I don’t know how these things work, whether the BPI always sends these out to whoever is credited with the artwork for the record, or whether the band or management create a list of people they felt contributed to the record’s sales, or whether I’ve just been presented with this by mistake…?

All I can say is I’m sincerely flattered to receive such a thing and very pleased that the artwork is considered to have contributed in however small a way to the success of the record.

As I have said before, I’m proud of the work I put into this, especially since it’s an independent release. The Public Service Broadcasting guys are decent, thoughtful people and deserve every success.

Royal Television Society Yorkshire Award

The animation I worked on along with Ashley Dean (www.brokenpixel.co.uk) won the Royal Television Society, Yorkshire Centre Award for Animation. This was a huge surprise, as I had actually forgotten Ash telling me he had entered the piece for consideration!

Thanks so much to everyone involved with RTS as well as the event for treating us so well, it’s a pleasure to win something so unexpected. Here is Ash and I with the award, adopting our ‘cop roles’ of Detectives Smug & Crackers. You can also view the animation below.

 

For some images showing how some of the assets were designed, head on over to the set on my Flickr page.
