News - All the latest news straight from the artists themselves
At the beginning of the 20th century in New York City, nine artists and one businessman gathered together to lay the foundations of the Society of Illustrators, all guided by the following credo: “The object of the Society shall be to promote generally the art of illustration”. More than one hundred years later the association is still feverishly loyal to their motto, actively nurturing and promoting the work of the best illustrators on the planet, which this year includes the work of Ray Oranges and his the highly successful New York Lottery campaign “Thoughts”.
“I was really happy to receive the Society’s invitation”, admits Ray. “I have always dreamed to be invited to their annual exhibition and in the past I submitted an illustration, “Uncommissioned”, but unfortunately it wasn’t selected. You can imagine how great it was to know that “Thoughts” was picked to be in this year exhibition - thank you Jury!”
