I am constantly astounded at the amazing talent that the folks associated with the Children's Book Illustration program have and the incredible work they produce. Faculty as well as current and former students won prizes in this year's poster contest at the spring NESCBWI poster contest, illustrating a challenging poem by Jane Yolen.
The poem reads:
Infirm Pachyderm by Jane Yolen

Many other talented RISD CBI students and graduates submitted posters. I don't have images of all of them, but it was an impressive body of work.
