The Society of Illustrators, an august institution long devoted to the now-vanishing artform of magazine illustration, has in recent years presented medals in the Sequential category for comics-type stuff. This year’s winners include a gold medal for GB Tran’s VIETNAMERICA and a silver medal for Brian Rea’s Modern Love, a series of illustrations for a NY Times column on romance.
Both artists are part of a show up at the Society’s NYC HQ until the 21st.
