trumpet blowing

I'm not one to crow in the normal scheme of things, and most of you probably have heard already, but I figure this may be my only opportunity to say this, so I'd better say it now:

I won an award!

Here's a blurry photo courtesy of Neill Cameron's phone:

It's the first ever Leeds Graphic Novel Award, voted for by 11-14 year old Leeds schoolchildren and awarded to me for Good Dog, Bad Dog book 1. I'm very pleased, especially as the trophy itself is a bit like a see through version of one of Obelix's menhirs.

And luckily I didn't even get nervous about the awards ceremony because I was absolutely convinced Mezolith was going to win and so there'd be very little attention paid to me. As a result there wasn't much of an acceptance speech (a mercy for all concerned, I'm sure) just a bit of a surprised yelp and a "thank you".

Now I need to decide where to put it...


  1. That is brilliant news - hope it gets some good coverage and results in piles and piles of sales :-)

  2. Huge congrats, Dave! I was so happy you won! It was really nice to see you & Adam the other day... hope everyone had fun at Thoughtbubble!

  4. well done and most shiny sir! it was lovely to see you albeit briefly and fuzzily ( on my part ) at a rushed breakfast.

    but many congratulations!

  5. Congratulations again! I think that makes you Top Dog!

  6. Awesome work bro, and so well deserved!!!



  7. Great stuff!
