Laura Tallardy is back on the scene with a wonderful new addition to the app market, and it’s just in time for Easter! “Find the Differences: Easter Bunny Edition,” which has been illustrated by the very talented Wendy Edelson, is an adorable – and FREE! – app for children and adults alike. Take in the charming, vintage children’s book-inspired illustrations and indulge in yourself in this adorable challenge. You’ll be ‘hoppy’ you did.

Valeria Petrone knows how to pare designs down to their most essential elements, and lucky for us, she does so with a lot of character and charm. We fell in love with her astrological designs for the Italian publication Io Donna – click here to see more!

Josée Bisaillon is back again with her latest picturebook, and we are so excited to see her bright and engaging illustrations bringing life to this wonderful story about family – and more importantly, belonging.
“Eat, Leo! Eat!” is her latest collaboration with Kids Can Press, and we couldn’t be happier to share this wonderful new tale with you.
Illustration students and educators, take note! The Society of Illustrators has added yet another prestigious scholarship to honor talented, hard-working junior level students.
Many are already familiar with the Zankel scholarship, which awards $10,000 towards the winner’s senior year tuition. But we are very excited to share that there is now a second opportunity for students in the Will Eisner scholarship, which awards $5000.
Schooling is hard enough without having to worry about how to pay for it, and we tip our hats to the Society and its patrons for awarding and commending the next generation of illustrators in such an impactful way.
Teachers, think long and hard about who you know who might be applicable – your vote of confidence could make a profound change in a student’s life.
