Anthony Amore, Chief Investigator and Director of Security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (and author of “Stealing Rembrandts”), recently welcomed artist/illustrator Travis Simpkins as a new contributor to Stolen Cavalier: a website dedicated to Art Theft awareness. Stolen Cavalier is a dual effort, managed by Art Crime and Security experts: Mr. Amore in the United States and Vicky Oliveri in Australia. On the site, Mr. Amore said of Mr. Simpkins, “Travis Simpkins is a dedicated lover of art. He protects it at the Worcester Art Museum. He creates it in the form of an amazing portfolio of sketches ranging from portraiture to interpretations of important art objects. And he preserves it via a weekly mailing of then-and-now photos of the WAM that accumulated quite a following and garnered him a great deal of publicity.Now Travis joins me and Vicki Oliveri at Stolen Cavalier, contributing writings and images related to art theft. Welcome, Travis!”

Gobblynne: Brand You Triple Award Winner!

BY-Group1

I went along to Bordeaux Quay in Bristol last night to watch the Brand You Awards ceremony, celebrating the work of individuals and freelancers within the SW’s creative sector.

I had been nominated for three awards, and was absolutely blown away (and actually a little embarrassed) to win each category!

The categories I won were:
ADVERTISING
This category invites entries from individuals who have created great advertising including ambient, art direction, charity, copywriting, consumer advertising, direct mail, illustration, outdoor, press ads, recruitment, self promotion and typography.
ANIMATION & FX
This category invites entries from individuals who have created great animation or FX and should include examples of the finished product and the story behind the project.
VIRAL CONTENT
This category invites entries from individuals who have created great online advertising, video or viral projects or campaigns. The content itself can be an article, a picture, or a video, but it must be very funny, controversial or information so that people feel an urge to blog about it, to tell their friends about it and to forward it on.

I’ve only been living in Bristol for just over three years, so this accolade means a lot – to be selected among many of the fantastic creatives in the South West of the UK. I’m part of the SW crew, yip yip!
