Gaby D’Alessandro’s recent inclusion in the 2014 NPR calendar was an exciting moment, as it is both a high profile gig AND a venue that enriches the artist’s own personal life. Her piece, which was used for the month of June, is stellar, and the work she put into it clearly demonstrates her admiration and appreciation for their programming:

Interview with Josee Bisaillon

We are big fans of Josee Bisaillon’s joyful and engaging collage-based illustration, and were very happy to learn that Kathleen Temean was intrigued enough by her work to reach out to the artist and write about Josee in her wonderful blog. In particular, we are big fans of learning about an artist’s individual process, so this was a real treat!

Mermaid Fashion Show and the Return of Laura Tallardy

After a brief hiatus to work on a new coding language and app design, we are pleased as punch to announce to return of MGI veteran, Laura Tallardy. Laura, whose vivacious and emotive tween drawings have captivated us from the start, has been working hard to develop a new stylistic direction and a new body of work in the form of the Mermaid Fashion Show, which is now available at the Apple App Store.

The entire process, from creating dozens of illustrations, learning Lua (the latest language), programming, and submitting the app for approval, took over five months from start to finish. But the final product couldn’t possibly be any more charming, and Laura is now able to focus her attention on other facets of her illustration career once again.

Blogmistress Kate was eager to be one of the first to beta test the app, and would like to introduce you to her doppelganger, Princess Kate (a very clever name, of course):

And welcome back, Laura!
