Illustration continues to garner respect in the gallery world, and this Thursday, May 23rd, we are excited to join Lisa Adams at Onishi Project Gallery for “Fine Art of Illustrators,” a group exhibition curated by Coco Masuda.
Lisa keeps great company, and this program is certainly no exception – the talented artist will be joined by Nancy Stahl, Robert Crawford, David Goldin, and Mary Lynn Blasutta.
If you are in New York, we’d love to invite you to join us at the opening – come say hello, enjoy a glass of wine, and take in these wonderful works.
It’s always a treat when an email reaches us, boasting about a spectacular find – and it just so happens to be one of our artists!
Gaby D’Alessandro was one of the winners of the first Latin American Ilustración contest, and we were so happy when the newsletter “Dispatches from Latin America” reached our inboxes – the piece was even picked up by American Illustration and posted all over their social media! Describing Gaby’s work, education, inspirations and personal history, it’s a nice window into the talented young artist’s life.
Take a look here – and congratulations, Gaby!
Raul Colon received a nice note from the marketing manager at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art this week – there was a wonderful article written about the upcoming Latino storybook exhibition in “PreView Massachusetts”, and Raul’s artwork was featured on the cover! We hope that the program is a huge success.
Happy Friday to our friends, artists, and colleagues!
I recently came across this fun post and thought it would be a perfect Friday afternoon treat. Apparently, official Hollywood posters are not allowed to be imported to Ghana – thus resulting in some very interesting treatments by local artists. The results are fantastic – some are quite funny, some have surprising depth (despite their naivete), and no matter your impression, we can surely all agree that they are fun twists on the originals. Check out these awesome interpretations here, and have a great weekend!
As you may already know, I (“I” being Kate, your dutiful blogmistress) recently took a wonderful trip to Paris. I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic, as one might imagine – pretty much every minute of every hour of every day.
Rick Tulka’s drawings of Parisians have always been a favorite of mine, and these sketches of people checking out works at the Louvre nearly make me feel like I am there. Enjoy!
“Folk tale literature throughout the world encompasses both magic and symbolism, comprising stories of saints, gods, myths, and legends. These repeated and recorded stories transcend various national and cultural boundaries.”
On March 26th, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art will be presenting “Latino Folk Tales: Cuentos Populares – Art by Latino Artists,” a remarkable exhibition featuring sixty-three original works from bilingual Latino folk tales. The illustrations, which were used to enhance stories collected from various Spanish-speaking regions of the world, were created by of 12 of the best and most prolific Latin storybook artists working today, including our very own Raul Colon.

We recently announced our partnership with surrealist collage masters ALE + ALE, and as we strategize how to position their work for the American Market, it is so fun to see their new portfolios popping up.
Those that are familiar with our company know that we appreciate working with the Ispot and the Workbook, so we are very pleased that they were eager to be featured in these terrific venues.
