Teatrio, an arts association in Italy, is behind an amazing traveling exhibition titled "The Fabulous Colored Pencils," which has been touring through Italy for more than a year and features what they consider to be the best 40 female illustrators worldwide. Included among the works on display are originals by Yuko Shimizu, Juliette Borda, Esther Watson (illustration pictured left), and Fernanda Cohen. Each artist was asked to provide eight originals and do a commissioned portrait of their favorite female celebrity from their homeland. The Fabulous Colored Pencils is curated by Mark Heflin, the director of American Illustration.
