B&A Artists Exhibit at The Society of Illustrators
Every year, The Society of Illustrators honors the best achievements in illustration from the past year in an exhibition. B&A's John Hendrix and Andrew Bannecker are among those selected this year for "Illustration 54: America's Original Annual of Illustration." The jury selected nine of Hendrix's illustrations and eight of those will be exhibited across all the categories. Two of Bannecker's illustrations were selected.
Hendrix's work represents a wide range in his professional life, advertising campaigns, children's books and editorial work with clients including AT&T, Rolling Stone and Random House. Three of his illustrations for A Boy Called Dickens, a type piece, and a Rolling Stone trivia series are in the show. Hendrix says it is always an honor to be a part of the annual show but that this year is "particularly special," for the number of his pieces included.
Bannecker's two pieces for the show are a non-commissioned illustration called "Night Falls" and an advertising piece called "Wish." "Wish" was created for the American Cancer Society. The piece represents "the birthdays that cancer survivors are celebrating thanks to cancer research."
The Society of Illustrators Annual Show will open on January 4th, 2012. For more information, visit The Society of Illustrators website.
