Mary Ann 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.”

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.”
