We recently saw that Teetering Bulb’s latest installment of their comic, “King of an Endless Sky,” has been posted to Tor.com, and it is stunning! Their striking yet subtle palette and perspectives continue to pull us in, and we’re eager to see where the narrative takes us.
Be sure to take a look!
Pete Ryan has been impressing us regularly since we first took him on a few months ago, but it seems that he is truly the artist that never sleeps.
He recently sent over an awesome blog that he works on regularly, called Nonslick. Consisting of dozens of interviews with leading Art Directors and phenomenal Illustrators whom he admires, the participants really open up and share about their experiences and approaches.
Be sure to check it out!

Shannon Brady and his wife Jill recently shared their wonderful news with us – the couple is expecting twins at the end of March/beginning of April. Congratulations!!!!
This is, amazingly, the second set of twins for MGI artists. Our agents are officially picking up the pace and doing their best to hustle up business with all of the new little mouths to feed.

Raul Colon recently learned that he has yet another award to tuck under his belt: his illustrative work has been announced as being a Winner in the 2010 Storytelling World Awards!
“Angela and the Baby Jesus,” which was written by the late Frank McCourt, has been selected as a winner in the “Stories for Pre-Adolescent Listerners” category.
We would also like to extend an additional congratulations to the publisher, Simon & Schuster, who has learned that 14 of its titles will receive one of the prestigious awards – a new record for the program. Congratulations!
We’ve added a new member to the team of wonderfully capable and extremely lovely ladies at Morgan Gaynin. Kat Heisler has just completed her first week handling the accounting and bookkeeping at MGI, and we are delighted to have this bright and energetic young woman on our team. Please take a look at our “About” section to learn more about our newest firecracker.
The Morgan Gaynin presence at the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators has gotten even bigger! Congratulations to Anson Liaw, who recently learned that he will be exhibited at the SILA Illustration West 48 Show. His winning piece, “Music by Women,” is a fine example of his superimposed concepts and distinctive energy.
We’ve found so many informative articles on the Copyright Alliance’s blog that it seems practically impossible to point to any one in particular. The organization, which believes that copyright law promotes both creativity and job creation, is a wonderful educational tool for creatives. We highly recommend frequenting their site – take a look here to learn about some of the most current issues being discussed.
We’ve become so accustomed to seeing Philippe Lechien’s prolific imagery of New York City, so it was a particular treat to see this gorgeous image of Paris.
We just learned about this Visual Literacy program, an online illustration academy for professionals. It sounds like a relatively inexpensive way to gain a lot of skills, knowledge, camaraderie and informed feedback. Take a look here!
