MicroVisions 5. Or, The Return of 5x7!

Think small.

Each year, Dan Dos Santos and I organize “MicroVisions”, an exhibit and auction to raise money for the Society of Illustrators’ student scholarship fund. Over the past four years it raised $20,000.00 which was given directly to students displaying exceptional promise in illustration.

I am proud to announce this year’s line-up of participating artists. I cannot thank these guys enough for dedicating their time and talent to this endeavour. To carve out time for anything beyond work and family is not a trivial thing to ask, so, applause to:

Scott Altmann
Scott Bakal
Rick Berry
Bill Carman
Jon Foster
Donato Giancola
Michael Kaluta
Tim O’Brien
Omar Rayyan
Jordu Schell
Allen Williams
Boris Vallejo

Bravo guys! Rest assured, the students really appreciate the support these scholarships represent.

The works will be on display at the Society beginning April 26th. Painting and auction updates as I get them.

Damn! What an amazing line-up! Each year I get so amped to see the MV pieces that each artists contributes to the show. I'm really stoked to hear that Tim is involved, I'm curious to see what he comes up with. Such an awesome list this year, I'm anxious to see updates! :)

Many many many thanks to the artists willing to go above and beyond the call of family and work! :-)

This is just wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.

And many thanks to Irene & Dan for doing this year after year after year! It's not trivial.

Oh a fantastic lineup. Will be very interesting to see the variety of work everyone produces for this. Very diverse in style and medium!
