laura ortoleva"Madonna and Child", Colored Pencil, 22 x 15, $500|      I am an award-winning and nationally recognized political cartoonist and editorial illustrator. My work has also been in a special exhibition at the Krannert Art Museum in Champaign, Il, the Art Institute of Chicago, and regional galleries. My preferred mediums are graphite and colored pencil.

For the past two years, I have donated one or two pieces of my artwork to the Raue Center for the Arts, Crystal Lake, Illinois, for its annual auction to benefit children's charities. The pieces always sell above the opening bid and this year one piece kept the auction open due to continuous bidding. It was 1 of 8 pieces out of 300 submitted by various artists to do so. I plan on joining the Lake Geneva Arts Foundation this spring or summer.
