Some lovely illustrations using photography

I was updating links when I popped in over at the Society of News Design and found a couple of gems I thought I'd share. Both links can be found over at SND if you click the Illustration link on the left. The first post is about various newspapers (mostly the Washington Post) and their illustrative coverage of the Oscars. Scroll through the etire post because there is some gorgeous stuff there, most of which is done by Sean McCabe. The second post offers some smart example of using iStock photos and not losing your soul or your self respect. The commenters debate the validity of using iStock photos and even the very talented photographer/illustrator Andrea Levy chimes in. GO CHECK IT OUT!
And while you're at it check out the illustrations in the GOLD post as well. Haunting and lovely.

Cartoon Scholarship!!!!

Hey Kids, there's a neat post over at Drawn! about the Jay Kennedy Scholarship in which you could be awarded $5000 just for being a student and drawing comics. Head over to www.cartoonistfoundation.org or click here for the link to all the information you need to apply. Don't dawdle! The deadline is December 15 and it will be here before you know it...and by before you know it I mean 111 days from now. I'm no rocket scientist, but I think that's only like a couple of weeks or something.
