Last week we visited the Society of Illustrators in New York during the last days of the stunningly awesome Spectrum Exhibit. Donato Giancola was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to provide an inspirational lecture and Q&A session for the students. It was cold and rainy but afterwards we made it to the Illustration House to drool over some more artwork. Floating about the premises were some Berkeys, De Seve's, Rockwells, Cornwalls, Parrish, a Dr Suess, one Sendack and a stunning Flagg. Some were color studies, some were rough drawings. All originals ... All breathtaking. An experience I recommend to any illustrator.
