Society of Illustrators - Original Art Show


This past week I was lucky enough to be in New York for the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show.  This show in particular was focused on Children's Book Art.  

The society hosted two floors of artwork produced by current and classic illustrators at the top of their game.  I was overwhelmed and inspired to be surrounded by such great work.  
Included in the show were works by a few of my favorites like Amy June Bates, Peter Brown, Raul Colon, Ian Falconer, Marla Frazee, Emily Gravett, Brian Lies, C.F.Payne, David Soman, and David Santat... among so many amazing artists.  

I felt really fortunate to have coincidently planned my trip at the same as the show.  It was the spiritual push forward at the perfect time.
