Event #2:
“Hi Lilla and everyone,
I’ve been invited to participate in an exhibition of international illustrators’ drawings to be held at Hotel de Vil in Stuttgart, Germany. The opening is November 20th at 7pm (19:00). It’s called the 100 Euro Show and it’s curated by Antonio De Luca (Creative Director of Walrus magazine among others). The show highlights drawings and sketches and everything will be priced at 100 euros or less. Here are my images, all ink on paper.”

A former art director makes food in the style of our artists’ work for her kids!

Former art director, Lisa Leconte, writes:

“Hi Lilla!
Not sure if you remember me, I used to work at weider/shape a long time ago. I stopped working at magazines when I had kids and now squeeze in my designing while making bento lunches for my kids. Anyway, i love your illustrators and am so inspired by them I did a tribute to Suzy Ultman for my kids lunch… just thought I’d share. Love love love the stuff you guys are doing and hope you’re well…”

Introducing Noonie’s Masterpiece by Sarajo Frieden

Introducing the amazing, fully-illustrated book by Sarajo Frieden, Noonie’s Masterpiece published by Chronicle Books and due out in Spring 2010.

What’s exciting about this book is that it’s a novel, yet, unlike most novels, every page is illustrated in full color. Sarajo spent many, many months on this project with Chronicle. By working on this for so long, she really was able to evolve her work to an astonishing level. That’s the beauty of working on a long-term project. So when you get a long-term project, look at it like a home-study course. Settle in and grow your work.
I’m always happy when an artist gets a project like this. I know, maybe even better than they yet know, that they will do some of their best work.

I think this book will do extremely well. It certainly deserves to.
