My illustrations for Dépêche-toi! (Hurry Up!) have won a Purple Island Award in the Nami Concours! 18 prizes were distributed with the Grand Prize going to Polish designer, Malgorzata Gurowska, for her book, “The Locomotive.” The Nami Concours is a biennial international children’s book illustration competition that aims to give winners global exposure and inspire others to higher levels of creativity. The exhibition of finalists and winners is an integral part of NAMBOOK (Nami Island International Children’s Book Festival) that is held on Nami Island, Korea. The whole island is transformed into a “library in a forest” and books are left out everywhere, in the hotel rooms, and on the pathways for visitors to discover. Nami Island is one of Korea’s top eco-tourism destination receiving over 3 million visitors annually and hosting a number of cultural events.
