“It’s been my honor and such a pleasure to have brought IF to life and to watch it grow into what it is today. But most of all, I have been incredibly inspired by all of you, and all the artwork that you guys have contributed. You all are amazing. I wish you all so very well, and I hope that you continue to make beautiful art every week.”Penny

10 years ago, illustrator Penelope Dullaghan started a weekly personal experiment as a way to explore and play with images and concepts outside the confines of commissioned projects.

She quickly discovered that other fellow artists wanted to participate too, and so she created Illustration Friday.

Although it started small, with about 10 or 15 people taking part in the weekly challenge, Illustration Friday grew quickly and organically into the thriving illustration community that many of us know and love today. With the addition of blog posts, artist interviews and resources for artists, it became one of the most popular online destinations for amateurs and professionals alike.

After 10 years, Penelope realized that the time had come to focus on other things, and handed the reigns over to Thomas James, illustrator and Creative Director of Illustration Age (that’s me).

Illustration Friday is here to stay, and rest assured that much more will stay the same than will change. I’ll be talking more about minor improvements and additions in the weeks to come, but for now I felt compelled to take a pause to honor everything that Penelope has done for so many artists by nurturing a sense of community and participation here at Illustration Friday, and invite you to do the same.

 

What has Illustration Friday meant to you?

 

Please leave Penelope a message in the comments below to let her know about your experience with Illustration Friday, and what effect it has had on your art, and your life. Then, be sure to participate in this week’s topic, TRIBUTE, in honor of Penny.

Weekly Topic :: “Farewell” — And a goodbye from Illustration Friday founder Penelope Dullaghan

This week’s topic is:

Farewell

Suggested by Penelope Dullaghan

* * * * *

Hello Artists! Illustration Founder Penelope Dullaghan here.

This is a hard note to write… But I have decided to move on from Illustration Friday. I’ve been running the site for close to 10 years already (my how time flies!), and my life is now heading in a different direction. So it’s time for me to let IF go.

As of this week I am handing the reigns over to Thomas James of Illustration Age. He’s a passionate community organizer, loves illustration as much as I do and will take good care of Illustration Friday – and you, the good folks of this wonderful artist’s community. I’m confident that the site will continue to grow and flourish in his capable care.

It’s been my honor and such a pleasure to have brought IF to life and to watch it grow into what it is today. But most of all, I have been incredibly inspired by all of you, and all the artwork that you guys have contributed. You all are amazing.

I’m sad to be leaving, but very excited about what the future holds. I wish you all so very well, and I hope that you continue to make beautiful art every week.

With creativity and much gratitude,
Penelope Dullaghan
