Parsons Illustration seniors Iain Burke, Katie Dunham, Sukyung (Hannah) Lee, Rachel Levit, Chelsey Pettyjohn, and Julee Yoo, and recent graduates William Hatch Crosby and Rachel Friedman (class of 2011) were selected by a distinguished jury to be included in the American Illustration 31 annual. It will be printed in full color and distributed worldwide in hardcover this fall.
From 8,000 pieces entered by over 1,200 illustrators, magazines, agencies, publishers, and schools, the jury selected only 439 images to appear in the book and represent the best pictures from 2011. Students and professionals were juried altogether and when the dust settled 30 student images were selected. With an unprecedented 11 of the 30 coming from the Parsons Illustration Program, Parsons ruled this year! Congratulations to them and their teachers!
