American Illustration 34
American Illustration 34 goes “head to head” this year with an original cover by artist Ranee Henderson, a recent graduate from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena with a BFA in Illustration. Her work exemplifies all that illustration can be, at a time when illustrators continue to reexamine who they are and how their work is utilized. The rules have been broken, presenting challenges and exciting new opportunities for image makers. AI34 is proud to salute these brave talents in this wonderful collection.
AI34, honoring the industry’s finest illustrators, publications and agencies, was designed by Eric Skillman, Design/Art Director The Criterion Collection, from a collection of work curated by a jury of top creative professionals. From 9,175 images entered in our annual competition, only 385 were selected to appear in the book, representing the best pictures from 2014.
This year’s jury included Lindsay Ballant, Creative Director, Foreign Policy; Sarah Garcea, Art Director, Inc.; Walter Green, Art Director, Lucky Peach; Anne Ishii, Owner, MASSIVE GOODS;Wyatt Mitchell, Creative Director, The New Yorker; Oliver Munday, Graphic Designer, Knopf/Pantheon Books; and Eric Skillman, Designer/Art Director, The Criterion Collection.
The AI34 book is 384 pages and includes the year’s most anticipated juried collection in hardcover.
