Bonnie Dain’s magazine work. Great line.

Bonnie’s line work is pure freedom and confidence. Partly why she’s so busy with work is that you can see the pleasure she gets from making art.

Susy Pilgrim Waters, Sarajo Frieden, and Rebecca Bradley at Icon 5 NYC

My three fab artists manned (womanned) the Lilla Rogers Studio table at Icon 5 Roadshow in NYC this past summer. Finally, I’m blogging these photos that Sarajo sent me. The Roadshow is a night during the illustration conference where artists show their work and art directors are invited to attend.

Here’s what Sarajo writes:
“The roadshow was pretty good, it wasn’t an amazing turnout (maybe people away for 4th of july?)..still, a lot of people came to our table. Rebecca, Susy and I gave out lots of samples and any biz cards too…Mostly LOTS of people were already familiar with our work, loved it, had gushing things to say!”

Sarajo always sends me great political links.

Sarajo writes:

“Hi,
My nephew always reminds me that thomas friedman supported going to war in Iraq, but I think he’s come a ways since then. I usually like his op-ed pieces. This particular one is about more than the economy, but addressing short sightedness in general, and creating a sustainable economy and growth model. I think it affects us as image makers because we will be hired to create the images for a culture that has to move in this direction.”

What happens when Jillian Phillips creates a little prototype of a playbook for children?

This is what you get. So, so charming. Do you know she goes to Japan a few times a year from her native London? She goes for inspiration. I love the Asian/Anglo thing she does. See more of Jillian’s work here.
