In conjunction with the annual International Exhibition each year, Colored Pencil Society of America presents a fun-filled convention providing colored pencil artists the opportunity to network and become acquainted with other artists, attend workshops led by experienced and accomplished artists, win door prizes at the Art Gala, and enjoy a banquet to see in person the announcement and presentation of exhibition awards.

The CPSA International Exhibition is an annual juried gallery exhibition exclusively for works done in 100% colored pencil. It is held in a different city each year to provide more people the opportunity to enjoy colored pencil as a fine art medium. This year's exhibition was held at the Mansion at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland from June 10-August 6, 2017. The recognition levels included: diamond, platinum, gold, silver, and bronze. One of this year's winners was Barbara Rogers, winning the Legion Paper award for Exceptional Merit.

The Worlds Favorite Color

Revealed via a cascade of paper helicopters over Humber Street in Hull, G . F Smith announces that ‘Marrs Green’ has been voted the world’s favorite color.

Following a global survey, where thousands of people spanning over 100 countries worldwide voted for their most loved color, ‘Marrs Green’, named in honor of the survey participant Annie Marrs, who chose the shade closest to the winning hue, will now join the iconic Colorplan range as the temporary 51st shade, and will soon be available at through Legion. 

Something changes as we reach adulthood. Our favorite color becomes less important as a statement of identity; some of us never think about our favorite color again — but it’s always there in the background, guiding our actions in ways we may not even notice, let alone understand.

Although we may not think about it, color still touches our lives. It can change our moods, influence our decisions and affect the way we react to the world around us — whether we realize it or not, color preference is one of the innermost drivers of our psychology. Somewhere inside, all of us have a favorite color. And here's what the world has voted...

Still 630, a premier boutique distillery, was recognized for crafting the finest small-batch whiskey in American in 2016. Their annual festival needed a poster to help show off this epic event. Designed by Yellow Ranger, and printed by Vahalla Studio , the poster was reverse printed on the reflective Mirri Silver 270gsm, making it a show stopper.

This was our first time using foil paper, and we truly believe that the outcome was as successful as it was because of the collaboration with a great studio like Vahalla Studios. They were extremely helpful on explaining what type of ink works best on foil paper (i.e. printing a white base to achieve true colors, black gloss ink instead of black matte ink) and we were stoked with the final results.
