The Get Together 2012 at our Office was a Blast!

Every year, the Solomon Empire hosts a little get together for the artists in the group and art directors that we have had the pleasure of working with over the years. There were many great conversations buzzing as old friends reunited and new ones were made over beer, wine, and Burmese appetizers. 


We also had another reason to celebrate, the night before our get-together, Edward Kinsella III received his silver medal at the Society of Illustrators. 


We wanted to give a big thank you to art directors who took the time out of their weekend to chat and laugh with out illustrators. 


This year, many of our artists came to toast to a  prosperous new year including James Bennett, Tim Bower, Scott Brundage, Doug Cowan, Paul Cox, Chris Gall, Rudy Gutierrez, David Johnson, Edward Kinsella, Dongyun Lee, Gregory Manchess, Hermann Mejia, Goni Montes, Douglas Smith, Mark T. Smith, Guy Stauber, Chase Stone, Mark Summers, Andrew R. Wright, Ted Wright (and his lovely wife Kelley), Kinuko and Mahlon Craft, and Mark Wiener
