My Illustrations in the Philadelphia Sketch Club’s Phillustration Exhibit

I’m very pleased and honored to say that I have two illustrations accepted into Phillustration 8 at the Philadelphia Sketch Club.

The juried show at the Sketch Club, which is the oldest association for artists in the country, has an opening reception on Sunday November 20 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. The show runs from November 11 to December 3. It features some of the best illustrations in the Philly area in categories such as books, editorial, advertising, institutional and student work. This year’s jurors were freelance illustrator and designer for 3×3 Magazine Skye Bolluyt; and Steve Spatucci, an illustrator, animator. author and multimedia creator whose Plasmic Studio develops identities for companies and implements them in various media formats.

The pieces of mine that will be in the exhibit are my illustration for the Bucks County Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s production of HMS Pinafore:

And my portfolio piece for The Pied Piper of Hamelin, published in the Bucks County Illustrators Society showcase book Fantasy Tales:

I invite everyone to take in this exhibit; illustration is fine art that tells a story. The Sketch Club is located at 235 S. Camac Street in Philadelphia, and the gallery hours are Wednesday, Friday,  Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

  1. These are so wonderful! Whimsy and smiles captured and bloomed in pigment by your artistry.
    It must be so wonderful to have a gift that makes this old world a brighter, happier place.

  2. Thanks so much, Cathy! The exhibit will have a lot of fun & beautifully detailed art in it – I’m always amazed when I go to the opening at how many different styles are dsplayed – just like in poetry, I guess!
