OCTOBER 31, 2008
A couple of nice things flew in through the transom this week:
The award was accompanied with excerpts from the judges' comments (no, my mother wasn't on the panel!)
1. a Gold Medal from the International Regional Magazine Association for an illustration I did for Adirondack Life last year. Congrats to the magazine on its gold medal too! I'm big in Cape Breton at least!
2. A book: "100 Habits of Successful Publication Designers" by Laurel Saville and published by Rockport. This well-written and designed inspiring book features the promised "100 habits" from contributers such as Aram Duplessis, Luke Hayman, Steven Heller, Arthur Hochstein, Ina Saltz and Jason Treat. There is a section on working with illustrators that features Anita Kunz, Martha Rich, Edel Rodriguez and me.
Habit #71: "Leave Some Thing Out" Good advice from Edel Rodriguez. On the right: illos by Anita Kunz and Rob Dunlavey
A nice spread devoted to Edel's work and thoughts.
