We are delight to share the news that Corey Brickley and Peter Strain are proud winners of the Communication Arts 2017 Illustration Competition, receiving an Award of Excellence. Corey Brickley for his dramatic album cover artwork for the release of Blood Youth’s debut album ‘Beyond Repair’ and Peter Strain for not just 1 but 3 covers produced for Arborist’s debut album ‘Home Burial' & 2 singles.
Of the 3,995 entries to the 58th Illustration Annual, only 178 were accepted, representing the work of 159 artists, making the Illustration Annual the most exclusive major illustration competition in the world.
Published each May, the Illustration Annual incorporates special reproduction techniques developed by CA, including quality 200-line colour separation and printing on premium 70 lb. coated paper by one of the finest printers in the United States. Everything that was originally in colour is reproduced in colour at a size that allows the concept to be understood.
