1. Society of Illustrators Call For Entries

    As the Chair for this year’s Society of Illustrator show, I was in charge of commissioning the Call For Entries poster. For the illustration, I asked one of my favourite illustrators, Vivienne Flesher. For the design, Chelsea Cardinal, who is a dear friend and multi-talented designer (who just happens to art direct at GQ Magazine).

    After pairing Vivienne and Chelsea, I just tried to stay out of the way and let both do what they thought was best for the design. The final result is surprising, interesting, and beautiful, I think! What’s more, it’s truly a double-sided poster… Chelsea’s type on the back is just as compelling as the front image.

    You can enter Society of Illustrator’s annual competition online now. Check out the list of stellar judges.

    Sometimes I think people question the function of a place like SI or usefulness of annuals in the age of the internet. Fair question. Certainly there are myriad other ways of promoting yourself to art directors, meeting peers, and getting your work seen. However, I can’t think of many other institutions that exist solely for archiving and promoting illustration and its history. And besides, the parties are pretty bumpin’.

    Thanks to Anelle and Kate for their help with the poster.
