World Illustration Awards 2016 at Chapel Gallery, Ormskirk

Kate Jenkins - Kate's Plaice The Stitchmongers - Self Initiated (Professional)

On a trip to Ormskirk recently I called in at Chapel Gallery (a favourite haunt) and took a tour round their current exhibition - The Association of Illustrators - World Illustration Awards 2016.

Nicholas Stevenson - Diary of a Time Traveller - Children's Books (Professional)

The awards, which cover 8 categories, brought in over 2300 entries from 64 countries.  This exhibiton includes the winners and a selection of shortlisted work.  The categories cover Advertising, Books, Children's Books, Design, Editorial, Public Realm, Self Initiated and Research & Knowledge Communication.

Josh Patterson - Bramwell Brown Weather Clock - Design (New Talent)

Whether serious or light hearted the work showcases the best illustration work out there.  I've just selected a few of my favourites.  And of course my very favourite was Kate Jenkins' work - but that's not surprising really.  Kate's textile art is witty and wonderful!
Andy Tuohy - Great Modern Artists A To Z - Books (Professional)

Levente Szabo - BAFTA Film Awards Brochures 2016 - Design (Professional)

Better hurry if you want to catch this exhibition - it closes on 6 May 2017.
