Winner of the CASEVIII Grand Gold Award and Alberta Magazines Silver Award for Illustration Katy Dockrill created the cover and interior illustrations for the Spring 2014 Feature: Map Out Your Best Summer Ever, for the University of Alberta's Alumni Magazine, New Trail. Katy's playful style and summery palette is the perfect touch to inspire summer fun! When I asked art director Marcey Andrews what the response to the issue was, she said, "It’s been fantastic, truly. We even received a very complimentary email from another illustrator we’ve worked with, Raymond Biesinger (who is a UofA alumni). When he received his issue of the magazine, he sent us a very nice message, saying, ‘killer cover’." Thank you for the 'killer' compliment Raymond!

In her fresh impressionistic style, Eili-Kaija created this great summery watercolor piece to promote Kiehl's facial sunscreen for Facebook. Don't you think Eili-Kaija successfully conjures the feeling of dappled sunshine through her softly mottled background. See Eili-Kaija's updated portfolio here!
For those Mad Men fans out there, this story should help you bring back the golden age of the cocktail in style! We think Ann Harvey, Art Director at Pace Communications, chose the perfect artist, when she asked Sarah Beetson to illustrate the splish splash zing of the 60's Essential Summer Cocktails!
