juror and design director of ALM Media Joan Ferrell says, "Illustration still has the power to communicate, inspire and, yes, sell in a more innovative and effective way, and I don't think that's going to change anytime soon." Bernstein & Andriulli artists Josh Cochran, Dan Craig, Nathan Fox, John Hendrix, Kristian Olson, and Yuko Shimizu continue to inspire and innovate. Their work appears in the 51st issue of the Communication Arts Illustration Annual.
