Antique Trader Magazine features Terry Kovel and Kovels’ 2023 Price Guide

December 1, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

The November 15, 2022 issue of Antique Trader magazine features the 55th edition of Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2023, and Kovels (http://www.kovels.com) business owner, Terry Kovel. 

I took the photograph of Terry Kovel for the magazine cover and an inside picture of her holding a teapot. 

Terry is my boss at Kovels and I have been very involved with the book for 12 years. I worked with dozens of auction houses to obtain the images for the price guide, as well as outlined and edited the images for the book directly for the publisher, Hachette in New York. The 2023 guide includes over 3150 images. 

In addition to working on the images for the price guide, both print and online versions, I also designed ads for the back of the book, and work on marketing materials for the book for its promotion and release, including brochures, buck slip inserts, email blast graphics, and social media ads.

Artists Draw Artists in Online Charity Fundraiser

November 30, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

After participating in several online drawing groups with other artists where we sketch from paid life models, it has also become popular for artists to sketch other artists in organized sessions. Many are called Draw Eachother, where people pose for 15 minutes for a portrait.

I participated in one on November 29, 2022 called, Draw Me Draw You, with the Scottish Borders Life Drawing Club (@scottishborderslifedrawingclub on Instagram), with proceeds going to Unicef to help children in the Ukraine. And, I was one of eight artists chosen to pose for a portrait, aside from drawing too. It was a lot of fun posing and seeing the results. Additionally, I got to meet and draw several other artists.

Here are a few of the fabulous portraits drawn of me by other talented artists from the fundraiser, showing a variety of styles and artistic approaches.

Portrait by artist, Baba Kre.

Portrait by artist, Yuji Sakuma.

Lively Lemurs

June 5, 2022

By Janet Dodrill

Wonderful Live Lemur Animal Life Drawing Session with @animallifedrawing Holly Surplice at Duke Lemur Center @dukelemurcenter with host Sara Clark. Live Coquerel’s Sifaka Lemurs and Ring-Tailed Lemurs in the woods. We watched them eat, groom, rest and nap. Beautiful creatures, and 50% of the session was donated to support the center. The animals gave the nod that they wanted to be left alone, so we sketched from photos that the center provided of a Black and White Ruffed Lemur and Blue-Eyed Black Lemurs.
