Inclusion in Taschen’s “100 Illustrators” is already a tremendous honor – selected from a handpicked list of 600 talented illustrators, Steven Heller and Julius Wiedeman narrowed their selection down even further to include only the best of the best.
So imagine how thrilled we were when the Huffington Post picked up on this exciting book (due out in December), and compiled their own list of favorites that you should know right now – with our very own Dave Calver listed as number 1!!!!
That sounds mighty fine to us. Congratulations, Dave!
Take a look at Huffington Post’s list or enjoy a sneak peek at Dave’s section of the book.

We all know that Laura Tallardy has some pretty solid artistic chops herself, but lately she’s been interested in helping others to hone in on their artistic side. But has her app development business gone to the dogs?!?

After being inspired by School for the Dogs’ “iPad pooches” and a conversation with founder Annie Grossman, Laura is excited to announce the release of “App for Dogs – Puppy Painting, Button and Clicker Training Activity Games for Dogs”.
Aside from being a fun and very modern toy, introducing our four legged friends to iPads also gives them constructive ways to unleash some of that crazy energy.

Josée Bisaillon’s whimsical collages have long had a home in magazines, picturebooks and other venues. But thanks to a recent partnership with the French Canadian site “Sur ton Mur” (“On your Wall”), fans are now able to imbue their homes with her characteristic ebullience and charm.
Take a look at her new shop, and get ready to smile!
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:
NPR continues to honor and promote the contributing artists on their blog, and we were so happy to see this recent entry about Gaby.

Friends and colleagues are certainly accustomed to seeing us mix and mingle at the Society of Illustrators’ annual Original Art Show, which champions the art of childrens’ book illustration. This year is a little extra exciting for us, however, as Simona Mulazzani will be receiving a silver medal for her work on “I Wish I Had,” a stunning picturebook published by Eerdmans. This is truly an honor, and one of the most prestigious awards a picturebook illustrator can receive.
Laura Tallardy is stealing the blogmistress’s thunder!
She was recently asked to create a second article for Corona Labs’s blog, and this time the expert chose to focus on the art of collaboration. Laura’s energy and enthusiasm for her craft is evident throughout the piece, and it’s a fun read for those that are considering jumping into the app world.
Give it a read!
