Fame at last! I've been nominated for two Eagle awards - category 6: Favourite Comics Artist: Inks and category 8: Favorite Colourist. I was going to put a link up so you could click through and vote for me , but I've left it so late that voting's closed. Heigh ho.
I did want to say a big "thank you" to everyone who voted me onto the nominations list - it's a lovely way to mark my 20th anniversary as a professional comic artist, which will come at the end of May.
Even better news is that Nick Abadzis has justly been nominated for an Eisner award for his outstanding graphic novel Laika. Voting for the Eisners is limited to those connected with the worldwide comics industry, but if you do qualify, you can register to vote at www.eisnervote.com.

Again late in the day, I've found out that Nick is producing a regular strip called Cora's Breakfast for The Guardian on Saturday; I've already missed a couple of weeks, but you can download back episodes from The Guardian website here. Apparently there are also plans to reprint the completed story as collection.
