Leurzer's Archive

A quick post to show my page from Leurzer's Archive 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide. This landed on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't have time to open it until now. Honoured to be a part of this - so many incredible talents and a great cover by Brian Stauffer.

I don't get to illustrate fiction very often. This image was for SubTerrain, and I illustrated the entire issue, from cover to cover. I posted about the project here. This piece won gold in the Western Canada Magazine Awards. Nice to have work out of the realm of my usual purview recognized.

On another note, my work was paired with Richard Borge in the spread. I am a huge fan of his work and he's a super nice guy! (I met him at ICON in Portland this summer).

The image was for a short story titled 'Detachment' - about a remote RCMP detachment, a stray dog, and the struggles of a young family, from the viewpoint of the oldest daughter. It was written by Lee Kvern.

Here's a full version of the image:

Society of Illustrators: Annual Show

Illustrators 56 opens Friday at the Society of Illustrators in New York City.

The show is on display January 7 through February 1. I am so pleased and proud to be a part of this show, this is the second consecutive year that I have been included. I wish I could be there to see all of the work, it is a jaw-dropping collection of the best in illustration. Congrats to the Medal winners Dave Plunkert, Melinda Beck and Sarah Jacoby.
The exhibition covers Institutional, Advertising, Uncommissioned, and Moving Image Categories.
This year marks my 25th anniversary in the biz. Looks to be a great way to start the year. If you are in NYC this month, check out the show: 128 East 63rd Street (between Park and Lexington Avenues).

In the Show

I created this for SubTerrain magazine, artwork for a short story by Marni VanDyk titled 'The Red Mouths' . This piece will be hanging in the editorial show at the Society of Illustrators, NYC, which opens tomorrow night (Feb 1) and will be published in the SOI Annual #55. 

Excited to be a part of the show!
