Congratulations Greg McIndoe on being longlisted in the World Illustration Awards and featuring on the Creative Boom Podcast!

What a week it’s been for Startworks artist Greg McIndoe (AKA Headless Greg)! Greg was invited to chat on the latest Creative Boom Podcast , where he discusses starting his own business,  social media, and the importance of recognising and reconciling struggle. It’s a really candid and thoughtful interview and definitely something we would recommend listening to whether you’re a recent graduate or established in your creative career.

On top of that, Greg has been long-listed in the World Illustration Awards in the new talent section of the alternative publishing category for his book he worked on his final year of university, Wilson Strange; a fantastic exploration of mental health through the eyes of the titular character.

With all this happening, we can’t wait to see where Greg will go next and how his talent will continue to flourish and be recognised. Congratulations Greg!
