Jon illustrated the book A Giraffe in Paris which recently won a 2012 Gelett Burgess Award for outstanding contribution to children’s literature—in Jon’s case, for Historical Tales. Congratulations Jon!
To read Part I of “If Lilla Rogers Studio had a craft line, what would it look like?” and to see some cool Ruby Violet videos, click here.
In Lilla’s spare time, she has cooked up a massive craft line
based on her obsessive passion for vintage/oddball/pretty items and jewelry making. Her artists, Jillian Phillips, Hsinping Pan, and Suzy Ultman all played a part in the project.
More on Ruby Violet on Friday!

Happy news… this fun piece was just accepted into the 3×3 Children’s Illustration Annual.”
“I was really delighted to design these gift cards for Pier1. Our Cartolina style fits the Pier1 brand nicely. I actually stumbled on these when I was shopping the other day – what a nice surprise!”
OrangePiel has a whole stable of Lilla Rogers artists to choose from!

“Selvedge is one of my most loved textile magazines. Selvedge is an independent, 100-page full colour magazine published six times a year. The magazine is image-led and has an uncompromising design.
I am happy to contribute in the new the Sporting issue. The magazine is currently with the printer and will be available for the end of next week.
Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context with illustrated features on fine art, fashion, interiors, ethnographic textiles, important collections, travel and shopping. The latest book reviews, exhibitions and comprehensive listings feature in every issue. The magazine provides a wide-ranging, unbiased and critical overview of the textile world.”
I am one of a group of about 100 or so artists invited by Creative Director Mark Murphy to create an original work celebrating Cartoon Network’s 20th anniversary. (read more here.) The work will be featured in an exhibition, catalogue and a collectable mini zine will be distributed for free at Jett Gallery and the Murphy Comic-Con Booth ( Comic-Con 2012 San Diego No. 4833), limited to 4000 copies. Each invited artist represents distinct creative categories including: painting, sculpture, print making, typography, design and illustration and have been paired up with a Cartoon Network show or character. My “character” is Huckleberry Hound and the title of the piece is “huck abstract(ed)ly.”
