JUNE 10, 2008
While there is still time, I want to urge those who can, to visit the Society of Illustrators to see the J. C. Leyendecker exhibition at the Society. I attended a luxurious dinner the other night hosted by the Society's Judy Francis Zankel. This event put the Society and yours truly in the New York Times' society pages. Putting on my vic-president hat for one moment, I was asked to again, alert those who can, to attend an evening lecture on Wednesdays, June 11th, at 6:30PM at the Society of Illustrators "An Evening with Bunny Carter" Alice Carter chairs the Illustration program at San Jose State University with a direct line to Industrial Light & Magic and other high end animation studios. Her students are a who's who of that market. Bunny authored the essay for the catalog of "Americans Abroad: J. C. Leyendecker and the European Academic Influence on American Illustration".. That show will be on display the night of the lecture. This is a rare opportunity to Q&A with a special woman. Terry Brown, Director Emeritus, will moderate the evening in his best James Lipton "Actor's Studio" manner ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Again, this show is stellar and worth the trip. Stay cool.
here are a few parts of his works on display...
You see, there are PEOPLE and then there are ILLUSTRATORS. We are ILLUSTRATORS.
