'Long-listed for the Book Illustration Competition' by Owen Gent

I’m absolutely over the (full) moon to have been selected for the long-list for this years Book Illustration Competition, illustrating the Folio Collection of Ghost Stories. Held by the House of Illustration and the Folio Society, this annual competition attracts some of the finest established and emerging Illustrators around so I’m blown away to be in the final 26! You can see mine and the other wonderful chosen entries here…


All of these pieces will also be in a three week exhibition at the House of Illustration in London from today until the 22nd of Feb, and you can find out more about the show here…


All I have to do now is not think about it until the award ceremony in a week, who’s counting anyway?
