Annual Exhibitor List
Marc Martin is an illustrator working with watercolour, gouache, pencil and computer. His work is a world of dense colour, rich textures and the odd scribble. He is also the author and illustrator of many books for children, including A River, named a Best Illustrated Picture Book by the New York Times. He lives in Melbourne, Australia
Rebecca is an illustrator, animator, and comic book artist, co-author of the graphic novels Compass South and Knife's Edge, and two-time SOI medal winner. She is known for her detailed, atmospheric, subtle gif animations. Past clients include The New Yorker and The New York Times, JetBlue, Lyft, AirBnB, WeWork, HBO and the BBC. Rebecca lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Sylvia Morris is a freelance illustrator and science communicator based in Melbourne, Australia. A background in mathematics (which involved a lot of research and abstract puzzle-solving) has combined with her childhood as a dedicated bookworm to create a useful, if unorthodox, foundation for illustration.
Merit Myers lives and draws in Brooklyn, NY with his kitten, Peat. Constantly drawing at home, at bars, or on the train—escaping to a world of shapes and color—Merit is inspired by New York and its many contradictions, oddities, and beautiful communities. His constant scribbling is a rich source for his playful, magical illustrations exploring a span of emotions from isolation to joy to sexuality to identity. He animates his drawings and designs playful characters, too!
