Lindgren & Smith

A Collection of New York Times Illustrations

Directory of Illustration artists regularly lend their talent to some of the biggest newspapers and magazines in the business. Recently, three of our artists worked with the New York Times.

Lindgren & Smith artist Chris Lyons created a piece titled “Attack of the Rotten Tomatoes.” It accompanied a story “about the way that studios believe that movies are increasingly living and dying (mostly dying) based on Rotten Tomatoes scores.”

Another Lindgren & Smith artist, Cannaday Chapman, created an image for the New York Times “Skin Deep” section. You can read the full article here and you can see Chapman’s image below.

Earlier this year, artist Mary Ann Smith created a four-panel piece for a Times article on the different types of art shows in New York.

“I was asked to illustrate the different characteristics of the multiple art shows being held in New York City each spring. I decided to solve it by imagining a guest at each of the shows near art that reflects their style.”

Illustrated maps use artistic style to create an accurate representation of an area while emphasizing what’s important and eye-catching.

In this way, illustrated maps give us the ability to virtually travel across the globe and visit places we’ve never been. They also serve to help us navigate our world and help us discover new, exciting things in our own familiar surroundings.

Here are a few examples of informative & captivating maps by Directory of Illustration artists.

John Holcroft: Statements on Modern Culture

British artist John Holcroft spent most of his childhood drawing, painting and making stuff from whatever he could find. Drawing from influences like David Cutter and Edward Hopper, he has reinvented his style at least half a dozen times.

His latest incarnation is a screen print effect created digitally and inspired from old adverts and packaging from the 50’s. This style has proven effective for him and has gained the attention of many editorial clients like the BBC, Reader’s Digest, The Guardian, The Economist and many more.

John Holcroft’s latest series examines modern society with clever and humorous illustrations that speak volumes on the state of our culture today. Consumerism, greed, frivolity and conformity are just a few of the themes that appear in this work.
