This past week American Artists Representatives’ very own Giovannina Colalillo, along with fellow artist Barbara Spurll, was recognized for her talents at the CAPIC Double Vision 2015 Show. Double Vision is a unique exhibition where image creators are paired up by a random draw, to create a unique and creative portrait of each other.
Their art is titled Streaming — In collaboration, they shake their inverted heads revealing important aspects of themselves. These cascading elements symbolize them, as in the headset representing Giovannina’s love for talking as she draws and paints, and Alice in Wonderland representing Barbara’s love for theatre and storytelling. Linking them together is their common Chinese Zodiac sign, the dragon.
The Gala opening and competitions took place on Tuesday, Feb. 24th, 2015, 6:30 – 10 pm, at the Arta Gallery in the Toronto’s trendy Distillery District.

One of the artists we represent, Bonnie Hofkin, is a very multi-faceted artist. She can illustrate in many styles, but we usually need her for her more realistic, “quick-sketch” drawings, that happen to look a lot like the anatomical and technical drawings of Leonardo DaVinci. Recently, the Balvenie, a range of single malts crafted by Malt Master David Stewart, contacted us looking for someone with a style like Bonnie’s. They host an annual craft show that tours around the United States.
Bonnie’s ability to create detailed yet rudimentary drawings intrigued the Balvenie, and they ended up using her original drawings of the pieces of a bicycle and the assembly of a guitar as the backdrop of the festival’s landing page (seen above). The craft festival itself has quite a roster of impressive artisans and unique products, from surfboards and sandals to chairs and suits. We were lucky to have Bonnie on our team for this project! She did an excellent job.
A History of Weapons is a book that really brings out the testosterone in you. Every crazy weapon you’ve ever heard of is in this book and it’s all been beautifully sketched by Barry Orkin. Barry was commissioned by Chronicle Books to draw out all 150 weapons; some of the weapons being giant war elephants and flaming pigs (Yes, setting pigs on fire was a tactic used by the Romans) as well as the most dangerous sword ever created: the Urumi.
A History of Weapons is scheduled for release on April 23, 2013.
The cover was illustrated by Barry as well!
