JosÃ©e Bisaillon cordially invites you to join her tomorrow, April 28th, for the Ooh LÃ LÃ Illustration showcase. If you happen to be in the Toronto area, be sure to swing by and say hello to this incredibly talented artist! In addition to some old favorites, she will also be sharing some of her latest works.
The event kicks off at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West in Toronto at 6 pm. Come on down!
Whenever we receive an email from Steven Tabbutt, he seems to have a slew of exciting news to share with us – and this morning’s note was no exception.
Last Thursday, he celebrated the opening of his latest solo show at the Yukiko Kawase Gallery in Paris. Entitled “Subcreation,” the show features several stellar examples of Steven’s distinctive imagery. If you’re unable to view the works in person, don’t fret – you can also take a look on their website here.
Steven was also excited to let us know that his arresting image, “Tourist,” has been accepted into Spectrum 18 – it is truly stunning.
It is successes like these that likely encouraged his alma matter, The Savannah College of Art and Design, to honor him with their “Distinguished Alumni Award.” They will be flying him to their campus next week for the awards ceremony.
Fans of Judith Drews’s delightful work for children will be happy to hear that she will be holding an exhibition in Berlin beginning on April 30th. If you happen to be in the area, be sure to stop by Nimmersatt – der Kinderbuchladen at Dieffenbachstrasse 53, 10967 Berlin. The show will be running through mid-June.
Well, this is exciting! JosÃ©e Bisaillon’s “darkly imaginative illustrations” were very well received by the New York Times’ Pamela Paul in Sunday’s Paper. We were bowled over as we saw her work trickle in for this recent title by the renowned children’s book author Stephen Krensky, and it is wonderful to know that we are not alone in our enthusiasm. You can take a look at the article here.
When the talented artist Victo Ngai first contacted us (via Twitter, I kid you not!), we were familiar with the name and curious to establish where we’d heard it previously. Upon looking at her portfolio, it became clear that we’d seen her work in a number of prominent venues, and we immediately recognized the talent of this rising star. We were very excited about the possibility of her joining our group, so it is with great enthusiasm that we are finally able to introduce to you our newest artist. Welcome, Victo!
Born and raised in Hong Kong and trained at the Rhode Island School of Design, Victo is now a New York based illustrator that has been recognized by prestigious clients such as the New York Times, Plansponsor, Communication Arts, American Illustration, Spectrum, the Society of Illustrators, SILA, 3×3, Applied Arts and CMYK – not too shabby for someone fresh on the scene!
Please take a look at Victo’s brand new portfolio and join us in welcoming this wonderful illustrator. Hip hip hooray!
And here we see the artist visiting our office with one of our mascots, “Sketch”:
