New York Times

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.”

Wesley Bedrosian for the New York Times

Engaging Editorials

Illustrations that elucidate the content of articles are necessary and inherently unique. Interpretation is in the mind of the artist.

Check out what the Directory of Illustration artists have created for the world’s largest publications.
