I was excessively chuffed to find out last week that I'd been awarded the 2012 Pewter Plate Award for Best Cover of the Year, for a cover I did for Highlights High Five magazine in the USA!
I've been illustrating and writing for a considerable number of yonks now, but I've never won an engraved pewter plate before.
This is the cover in question...
Highlights is the biggest and most prestigious magazine for children in the States. It's been going for over 60 years and has sold over a billion copies since it started. Just so you know.
