John S. Dykes : A big THANK YOU to American Illustration and the FINE jury for Choosing these two personal works for the American Illustration 40 Online Archive situation! Always nice to be recognized. AI 40 represents the best images from 2020.
King Orchards - was created as part of a series of illustrated journal images of a summer RV trip. Spatulas is a 36" x 44" mixed media painting on wood with acrylic resin. And many thanks to the great Mark Heflin for his tireless support of illustration (and photography) in our world. #americanillustration #illustration

Scott Bakal : Last week, I received a note that this piece was Selected into the American Illustration 40 Annual.
This was created for Richmond Magazine for the incomparable art director Heather Palmateer. It was for a story about veterans, the rise in suicide rates and how they are often alone in their internal battles with PTSD which social workers are trying to fix and make continual connections with people who are at risk. Men suffer the worst and suicide rates for vets are up to 18% higher than the civilian rate.
Thank you for your work chairing the committee Gail and thank you Mark for keeping such a huge portion of the illustration community together through your work at AI-AP and ICON. ❤
A big congratulations to all of the Selected and Chosen winners!

Julie Murphy : Wow, this is a very pleasant surprise: This sketchbook drawing was selected for the American Illustration annual!! Many thanks to the AI jury. I'm floored because this year has been a struggle, creatively. I'm grateful to have a ton of artists among my FB friends and their work has been a beacon of light, hope, humor, distraction and meditation in a difficult time for us all. No matter what happens in the world, we need art. Even improvisational drawings about a pandemic-era raccoon domination dreamscape, apparently.
Sidebar: Lately Gmail has been directing important email into my Spam box. I checked it today and discovered this wonderful email from American Illustration that had been sent on Thursday. I had accepted that I didn’t get into the book this year. Which has happened to me, a lot. Competition is stiff! There are a gazillion amazing illustrators out there. Be sure to check your spam folder once and awhile. Sorry, that sounds gross. Anyway, this made my day!

Anson Liaw : American Illustration 40 Chosen Winner news
Positive news is very rare during these dark uncertain and difficult COVID-19 pandemic times. So, I consider myself to be fortunate to have a little bit of good news happen for me personally and to share today.
And even when positive news does manage to happen, so much pain, sadness and loss is happening all over the world that it is hard for me to feel good about them.
I am very honoured, pleased and consider myself to be fortunate and blessed to be informed today by Mark Heflin, Director American Illustration-American Photography that my illustration entitled, Unfortunate COVID-19 Fabrications of Truth that was submitted for American Illustration 40 has been CHOSEN as a winning illustration to appear online as part of The ARCHIVE collection at ai-ap.com
American Illustration 40 had a field of over 7,000 images were submitted and only 559 images by professional illustrators, and only 78 images by student illustrators received at least 2 votes from the jury and therefore, won the eligibilty to have their illustration artwork appear permanently online in the ARCHIVE - AI-AP exclusive online juried collection, where over time illustrators can build an online portfolio of their winning American Illustration images and crratives can search and make direct contact with them.
My illustration image, along with my contact info, caption, credit information and link to my website and social media, will represent the best images from 2020.
Thank you very much to this year’s distinguished jury which included: Gail Anderson, Chair BFA Design and BFA Advertising SVA, Jury Chair, Antonio Alcala, Art Director, Studio A, Bashan Aquart, Executive Creative Director, AKA/NYC, Lynne Carty, Art Director, Wall Street Journal.

Very honored to have “Windborne long-distance migration of mosquitos” chosen to be in American Illustration 39! My heartfelt thanks to the judges. It was done for a journal cover, and one of the paper’s authors, Tovi Lehmann (NIH/NIAID) commented that this “also marks some pe*******on of our scientific work on art and culture.”
