SVA, along with Drawn & Quarterly, Fantagraphics and TOON Books, is partnering with New York’s iconic bookstore, The Strand, on a limited-time opportunity for artists: The Strand Tote Bag Design Contest.
The grand prize winner will have his or her work featured on a tote that is sold online and in store, and will join an illustrious group of artists who’ve paid homage to The Strand, including Masterpiece Comics creator R. Sikoryak, graphic novelist Adrian Tomine and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who will all serve as judges in this year’s contest along with SVA’s Steven Heller, co-chair of the MFA Design Department, and New Yorker art editor Francoise Mouly.
Submission details and a full list of prizes can be found here. The deadline for submissions is March 31.
