About the artists
Vivien Mildenberger lives on a lovely farm just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. There she works on her illustrations, pottery, and other general magic-making. She loves illustrating for children most of all. Her work has been featured by publications such as New American Paintings and American Illustration. Publishing clients include Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, QuartoKids, Little Bee, Penguin and Macmillan/Henry Holt.
Kyle Field’s world on paper is composed of images both familiar and utterly abstract. His narratives lack a beginning, middle, or end. They are simultaneously ordinary and fantastical. Organic shapes coexist with primal figures in an expanding island of lines. His palette of deep browns, rich ochres, light pinks, sky blues, and emerald greens floats within a graphic network of inked line. Sometimes we’ll see an amalgamation of images: abstract trees, faces, and shapes of nothingness, each emptying into the next.
Field is also a musician, at the helm of the group Little Wings. His life as a musician enters his artwork through the stream-of-consciousness poetry and phrases that are found in his drawings. Field has released over a dozen albums and has played with Grandaddy, Lee Baggett, André Herman Dune, Peaches and Devendra Banhart.
Jason Holley is a Texas born illustrator, educator, and exhibiting artist. His illustration career spans 25 years and he is widely recognized for his influence and contribution to the field. Clients include Sony, Dell, Rolling Stone, New York Times, MTV, RCA, The New Yorker, Pentagram and Random House.
