Back from a NYC break. This city ceases to amaze me. After a few white-knuckle cab rides, (Oh we took the subway too) we managed a visit to the Time Warner Building, friend and artist, Malcah Zeldis, the Society of Illustrators, and then there were the restaurants-- Pure Food and Wine and Candle 79...my daughter was in vegan heaven.
The Society of Illustrators was really inspiring...Brad Holland, Sam Weber, Dan Adel, Kadir Nelson, Donato Giancola, Marc Burkhardt, Jody Hewgill and Frances Jetter to name just a few.
All the illustrations in the exhibition were editorial or book. It seemed abundantly digital, but there was a lot of mixed media, and some straight out traditional (watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic, pen and ink) which was fun to look at up close.
