Valeria Petrone’s striking imagery garners a lot of attention, but it was particularly exciting to see her recent American Illustration profile.

It seems we allowed our excitement regarding Sylvie Daigneault’s acknowledgement from Creative Quarterly to get the better of us, as we should have waited just a few hours to learn that Anson Liaw was also included in the latest batch of winners!

We have been admiring Jonathan Bartlett’s ever-evolving work for quite awhile now, and it has been truly enjoyable to follow his ascent as an illustrator.

And don’t even get us started on that impeccable technique!
Valeria Petrone recently made her debut into the app world, and the results could not have been cuter:

When is the last time you brushed up on Copyright law? How in tune are you with your rights as a freelance illustrator?
It is prudent that all artists take a moment from time to time to brush up on their knowledge – especially before trouble hits!
The Graphic Artists Guild has a great list of tools on their website that we wanted to share with you, in addition to in their invaluable printed handbook. If it’s been awhile since you’ve last read up on the ins and outs of the legal side of the business, we strongly recommend that you take a look.
