I received my copy of the Communication Arts Illustration Annual 50 the other day, and I've been spending a bit of time wandering through its pages. The art in CA Annuals is always very inspiring. I feel deeply honored to have one of the 207 winning projects (out of 5,470 entries), which includes work by illustrators that I've looked up to since high school (Gary Kelley, Brad Holland, Edel Rodriguez, just to name a few). This is my first time being accepted into the CA Illustration Annual (although I did have some old work exhibited in the Fresh section of the CA website), and it's incredibly motivating to see my piece alongside the industry's best talents. Pick up a copy and enjoy all the great illustration!
