Barbara Nessim at Victoria & Albert Museum

It’s not every day one of America’s best regarded illustrators gets a solo show at one of the most famous museums in London. Barbara Nessim is well known for her contributions to the pop culture looks of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and she was also one of the first artists to make computer graphics as art.

The free V&A show opens Feb. 15 and runs to Mar. 19, in London, England. There are talks on Feb. 21 and Feb. 22.

Abrams is publishing a book to coincide with the event.

My heart goes out to anyone trying to have an art opening today, in the blizzard. If you are in Hamilton, get yourself out to support Charlene Chua. If you are not in Hamilton, help her out by sharing/reblogging.

SI on the Fly!: The Society Does Not Censor

image After much delay, the Society of Illustrators’ 54th Annual of American Illustration has reached the US and is now available in our Museum Shop and online. We wish the delay in receiving Illustrators 54 was a simple printing error or even a problem in customs, but the story goes deeper.

BBC hosting futuristic animation/illustration competition

Koji Yamamura

I usually disapprove of design competitions, which are usually just lame excuses to get creative work done for free at artists’ expense, but if you have something already made that fits the bill, and the client is BBC and it appears to be a nonprofit event, I can be persuaded to back it.
