Parsons Illustration seniors Franca Barone, Leigh Cunningham, Kristen Davis, and Meghann Stephenson, and recent graduates Monica Ramos and Hazel Lee Santino (class of 2012) were selected by a distinguished jury to be included in the American Illustration 32 annual book. This year’s distinguished jury included Jordan Awan, The New Yorker; Sergio Baradat, United Nations Postal Administration; Chad W. Beckerman, Abrams; Joele Cuyler, Real Simple; Jennifer Daniel, Bloomberg Businessweek; Grace Lee, Priest + Grace; and Alexandra Zsigmond, The New York Times.
From 8,742 pieces entered by over 1,282 illustrators, magazines, agencies, publishers, and schools, the jury selected only 369 images to appear in the book and represent the best pictures from 2011. It will be printed and distributed worldwide in hardcover this fall. Congratulations to them and their teachers!
