The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence is well-known for training artists in a wide variety of fields, and has graduated many of today’s authors and illustrators. The museum (see http://risdmuseum.org/) features more than 25,000 items in its Prints, Drawings, and Photographs collection.
Examples are on the collection’s website page at http://risdmuseum.org/art_design/collections/prints_drawings_and_photographs.
Alumni of RISD include writers/illustrators David Macaulay and Chris Van Allsburg.
