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.
