Jay's selected Winter 08 classwork gallery

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

I just finished organizing and creating a new website gallery for the selected student work in my Winter 08 classes: Materials & Techniques I, Book Illustration, and Self Promotion. These images all have descriptions and mediums used. Congrats to another great quarter students!

Also, if you have not already, click over to the newly developed portfolio websites of four illustration major seniors. They all worked very hard on their websites and it's time to start promoting them. With any good site design there needs to be several people to test the site. There is always room for improvement on any site, so check out how it looks on your browser and if there is any problems with navigation or technical issues be sure to let them know.

Negative Burn Lives!

cover art by Heather Elder
Finally, after months of waiting, Negative Burn is breathing again, if only barely. Three of our finest, Heather Elder, Jessica Hillis and Erik Mehlen had pieces chosen to appear on the cover of the Desperado Publishing Comic Anthology, but their pieces were in limbo after it appeared that the title was going to go belly-up. Thankfully, it lives!
Heather Elder's piece "Stir Crazy" appears on the most recent edition. Unfortunately, the credits are wrong; they attribute the cover art to Jessica Hillis. Oh well, what can you do. Anyway, the cover looks great even if the name is wrong. Great job, Heather! We can't ait to see Erik and Jess's covers in the near future.
