Every issue of Nickelodeon Magazine is chock-full of cool spot illustration by a diverse range of amazing illustrators. So when we do an art themed issue we go the extra mile to BRING IT.

Here's a sampling of the cool stuff you'll find in September Nick Mag (outside of the comic book section we usually go on and on about!)





Riffs on the Mono Lisa by: Sara Varon, Johnny Ryan, John Kerschbaum, Greg Clarke, David Sheldon, James Kochalka, Hal Mayforth, JEf Czekaj, Calef Brown, GAry Clement, Sam Henderson.


Page folios by Kim Deitch!


Another thing that Nick Mag should get props for is how every issue has a completely unique masthead (the page with the credits for everyone who works on staff). Designer Tim Jones, puts more effort into creating amazing mastheads than other people put in their whole magazine. This months Picasso style jamboree was created by animator/cartooning phenom, Sherm Cohen!

Why are we spending money killing people when we could be spending money unraveling the mysteries of the universe.

Of all the things we could have imagined we'd find, would we have predicted such a phenomenon as fire.

Nick Mag in the Classroom

I used this Mona Lisa feature to introduce my students to Leonardo DaVinci and to launch a school-wide art project. I invited my students in grades one through seven to draw an accurate version of the Mona Lisa then adapt it somehow to make the drawing their own. The same way your artists did here. The results have been spectacular and usually pretty funny.

If you're curious to see them, I'll be posting a wide selection of their Mona Lisas in the next week or so. Until then though, I thought you might enjoy this solution especially, by fifth grader Pini G.:

Thanks for the inspiration!
