There is a constant trickle of awards nominations coming in for my work, which is nice.

There are Cats in this Book” was shortlisted for the 2010 Cilip Greenaway award for best illustrated book, and it won the popular “shadowing” vote of the children, I hear… The sequel, “There are No Cats in this Book” was shortlisted in 2012.

I was shortlisted, longlisted and highly commended for this that and the other, including at some point a V&A illustration award, but the one that’s on my shelf now is the 2011 Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award

Oh, and in 2011 I was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Award. I didn’t get it, still: pretty good.

Let’s see what happens this year.
