Illustrator Saturday: 2018 NJSCBWI JURIED ART SHOW

“All this he saw, for one moment breathless and intense, vivid on the morning sky; and still, as he looked, he lived; and still, as he lived, he wondered.”
-Kenneth Grahame, The Wind In The Willows

Create an illustration capturing the essence of wonder.

The illustrators attending the 2018 NJSCBWI June Conference were given the challenge to set their imaginations free again. That was the theme for this year’s Juried Art Show.

Some chose to visit a favorite childhood story and recreate an image with their own unique take on a scene. Others chose to create their own world. Places filled with butterflies and fairies, pirates and magic. They all had magic.

The Juried Art Show has become a favorite part of our conference. Each year the art show seems to get better. The artists are reaching further and achieving new heights. As a result the judges really had their work cut out for them.

In all there were 36 illustrations on display. The name of the game was CHILDREN’S BOOKS. Our select faculty judges looked for dynamic pieces that also fit into the realm of books for young readers. They based their decisions on the following criteria:

  • CRAFT—How well the artist handled their craft and technique
  • IMPACT—Did it possess that “WOW!” factor
  • CONCEPT—Was it fresh, were there unique takes on universal themes
  • MARKETABILITY—Was it suitable for the marketplace
  • NARRATION—How convincing was the visual storytelling
  • EMOTION—Did the piece evoke reader response

The winners for the 2018 NJSCBWI Juried Art show are:
