John S. Dykes: Frogfolio

By John S. Dykes

A few Saturdays ago, Jim Burke and his family were over for some dinner. Along with a fine bottle of wine, he brought a Frogfolio calendar project for me to create, due that coming Friday. Excited for sure, but I had a number of assignments due the same week. (Ugh!) Ah, the life of an illustrator! The Frogfolio calendars will be available in September - online ordering info to come for all frog-loving parties interested. A detail and sketches follow.

Re: the title of this piece - does anybody remember Flit or seeing the ad campaigns in old publications? It was bug killer in the late '20s to the '50s containing DDT in the later years. Theodor Suess Geisel created artwork for the long running campaign.
Many thanks to Jim Burke - I've admired the calendars he has art directed so well for so many years and am glad to be a part of this series. Jim and a number of illustrators have garnered something like 8 medals from the Society of Illustrators over the years for their calendar illustrations.

Stanislawa Kodman: Elegant Simplicity

By Artist Agent Alexander Pollard

Stanislawa Kodman's graceful style combines a simplicity of lines with areas of more detail to draw your eye to the lovely patterns in the scarves and hats. Always elegant but with a whimsical touch, Stanislawa's illustrations would be perfect for showcasing fashion and accessories or simple enough to highlight products and their features. Be sure to check out our blog, The Pimento Files, to see Stanislawa Kodman's series of illustrated posters for a Paul Simon lecture. These posters won a 2014 CASE Circle of Excellence gold award.
