Meet Our Judges: Veronica Grech, Illustrator

Welcome to the thirteenth annual 3x3 International Illustration Awards, over the next several weeks we will be introducing you to our international jury of art directors, designers, publishers and illustrators.

Verónica Grech is a Spanish graphic designer cum illustrator whose young career has already received notable recognition. Based in Asturias, a coastal town in the north of Spain, Verónica attended San Carlos University in Valencia prior to beginning a career as a graphic designer.

Her work has the designer’s sensibility coupled with references to mid-century poster art and children’s books. It is no wonder her influences include artists Will Barnet, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Charley Harper. Her color palette is influenced by photographers Richard Rutledge and John Rawlings and her sense of style through her love of architecture, fashion design and photography.

While pursuing graphic design assignments she worked on her master’s degree in illustration and encouraged by her husband, she moved towards full-time illustration. In addition to her work she is currently a professor of illustration and art at Oviedo University. Working in one of two studios—one for digital illustrations, the other for personal projects—she works on commissioned assignments from all over the world. Recent assignments include work with The Washington Post, Ebony, The Boston Globe and The New York Observer.

Most recently she was named best new talent at the Association of Illustrators World Illustration Awards. Her work has also received recognition from American Illustration, Communication Arts, 3x3 International Awards Show and the Society of Illustrators.

Verónica will be judging our professional show.

  1. It's awfully hard to believe that the Rolex GMT-Master II 16710 has been gone from showrooms since roughly 2007. That's nine years ago! It's hard to believe because the 16710, itself, debuted all the way back in 1989 and seemed like one of those omnipresent pieces - especially rolex replica watches when it came to buying a piece like the one before you with a so-called "Pepsi" bezel. If my research is correct, Rolex made a Pepsi-bezeled watch in cheap football shirts either GMT-Master or GMT-Master II form from the inception date of the line in 1954 through 2007 and then, poof, they stopped. Today, as we all know, Rolex replica watches is back with a Pepsi-bezeled GMT-II but it's only for the extremely well heeled because it's offered solely in an uber-pricey white gold case. Look, it's not as if Rolex hurt for cheap polo ralph lauren business while not serving up a Pepsi - in fact, when the 116710 debuted with only a black bezel in 2008, people were on waiting lists, but it's odd when a famed company decides to kill off its golden goose. Blame ceramics technology I suppose.
