Illustration panel at CAA 2013!!

Exciting news! My colleague Doug Dowd and I proposed a panel on illustration studies to the Association of Historians of American Art for inclusion at next year's CAA - and it was accepted!

For those who don't know art history circles, getting a panel or paper into CAA (College Art Association) is to art historians what getting into the Whitney Biennial is for artists. As far as I know, this is the first time the merits of periodical illustration and its status in American art history is going to be discussed in detail, with the most prominent art historians on the continent.

I hope all my illustrations buddies can make it! This is a milestone for the entire field. Possibly we are marginalized no more!
