You may think the Society of Illustrators is all about wine and women, but there are other benefits to being a member. Like the opportunity to pad your gallery resume.

Every year the Society of Illustrators throws “Our Own Show”, an exhibit of art by the members. That means you, champ, if you fork over the membership fee. The artist voted best of show gets a cash prize, while everyone else can write that they hung in the Museum of American Illustration.
