JUROR
Carol Fabricatore is an artist in the New York City area who is a great observer of all things and likes to approach creating narrative imagery beginning with an emotional connection to an idea. She often gravitates towards subject matter that might be seen in one’s peripheral vision or passed by on the way to something in the mainstream. She has produced art for books, magazines, newspapers, and projects for design and advertising firms. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Program and has taught narrative drawing in that program since 1994. Carol has had work in American Illustration, Communication Arts Illustration Annual, Society of Illustrators, Creative Quarterly and has won awards in the Society of Newspaper Design, The San Francisco Show – Gold winner, Graphic Design USA; Desi Award, Graphis; Top Ten Illustrated Annual Reports & Society of Illustrators Los Angeles among many others.
