American Illustration 34 slide show is here

It is always a huge honor to get my works accepted into acclaimed competition American Illustration. This is my 14th consecutive year getting selected to be in the book (and 15th year, if I count the first time I got my works chosen to be on their website). Crossing fingers for many more years to come. I just love American Illustration!
American Illustration 34 annual book won’t get published till November during Illustration Week, however, there is no wait. They have just released the slide show of all the winning works on their website.
This is actually a great resources for illustrators and aspiring, especially for those who live outside of the US and want to get to know what are considered to be the best American illustrations from previous year. Great way to market research.

Below are my works that are accepted into AI 34. Thank you judges and thank you clients for giving me an opportunity to create interesting images.
