Friday, February 6th, 2015, I was honored to accompany Jody Hewgill on stage as she accepted her Gold medal from Society of Illustrators for her painting of "Before Midnight” (which I assigned to her back when I was still kicking ass as Design Director of Entertainment Weekly). Little did I know that as Art Director of the piece, I would also be given an actual Gold Medal and certificate. Very cool! Thanks to everyone at SI (and of course, the jury) for the award.
Congratulations again to Jody, who is ridiculously talented and amazing in general. This piece is so good. I love working with her and there are some great pieces of art that exist out there in the world because of it.
