Katy Dockrill: Map Out Your Best Summer Ever

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!  To see more of Katy's whimsical illustrations visit her portfolio.

Tim Zeltner for Yankee Magazine

Tim Zeltner illustrated this fantasy winter wonderland for a travel feature, The Town of Our Dreams, art directed by Yankee's Lori Pedrick.  From snow covered rolling hills, quaint homes, picture-perfect shops to horse drawn sleigh rides, Tim created this fictitious place called NewEnglandville--the town of New England's dreams!

Tim Zeltner Maps Out Ontario Wine Regions

Geoff Redwood from Jan Kelley Marketing approached us to see if Tim Zeltner could paint a map showing all the different wine regions of Ontario in his trademark, whimsical style.  The map was for a new website Jan Kelley was creating for Ontario Uncorked, which has now been unveiled here.  The website allows you to explore and plan customized tours throughout the famed wine regions of Ontario.  The little extra details Tim brings to a piece like this, are what makes the viewer engaged in the 'experience' of the map and this is exactly what this new site is all about!

John Webster illustrates the Odd

John Webster recently created this fun piece, art directed by Shane Lutjens, for an article in Enviva Magazine on odd museums to visit in Houston, Texas.  See if you can spot the references to some of the feature locations: The National Museum of Funeral History- everything you ever wanted to know about Funeral Heritage in the United States: Day of the Dead, Civil War Embalming, etc.

Orange Show Center- The Orange Show was started by a Houston postman, Jeff McKissak, to celebrate his favorite fruit. The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art is now a hub for folk art activity.

Beer Can House- yep, a house made out of beer cans. Ripley's Believe it or Not estimated that over 50,000 cans were used to create the house.

Art Car Museum- what better place to visit while on a road trip than a museum showcasing imaginative  "art cars" and mobile contraptions. They also feature other works of contemporary artists with a car theme.

The Rothko Chapel - founded in 1971, this is a sanctuary available to people of every belief, inspired by the modern, minimalist work of Mark Rothko.
