Since it’s Thanksgiving today, I’m going to take a break from the Seven Deadly Art Sins series. (Although, damn, I really should have saved Greed/Gluttony for this week.) If you’re in the U.S. then eat your face off and take a nap and try to be thankful for everything you have that is good. If you are not in the U.S. then eat your face off and take a nap and try to be thankful for everything you have that is good. If you have a day job tell your boss I said it’s ok to allow for said nap.
I am going to eat my face off, then take a nap, then probably try to catch up on Supernatural.
We’ll be back tomorrow with your regularly scheduled art posts, but for now, please enjoy a selection of Thanksgiving Dinner, plated by artists. You can see the whole series at Hannah Rothstein’s page. Buy a print, and the proceeds go to a Food Bank. Double awesome.
After 17 years designing and art directing book covers, Lauren Panepinto has worked in every publishing genre and collaborated with artists of all disciplines. As the Creative Director & Vice President of Orbit Books for the past ten years, she has been trying to merge the worlds of genre and commercial publishing and figure out what SFF publishing looks like in the present world of mainstream "geek" media.
After an amateur career in punk rock show posters and 'zines, Lauren received a B.A. in Graphic Design from The School of Visual Arts. She has worked in fashion (Perry Ellis), television (MTV), and for boutique design firms, but found her calling in book publishing. She has worked at St. Martin's Press/Picador Books, at Doubleday/Random House, and now at Hachette Book Group, the parent company of Orbit.
In addition to traveling all over the place giving portfolio reviews at conventions and writing for Muddy Colors, you can also find her art business education projects at www.DrawnandDrafted.com, and www.MakeYourArtWork.com, and all of her many projects and www.LaurenPanepinto.com.
