All my students worked really hard on their assignments and some finals actually turned out to be note worthy. Here is a link to a web gallery I created showcasing their wonderful work.

Also my Senior students in the Self Promotion class did great job on their promotional materials. Here are links to the most important promotional material - their website. Send them an email from their website they all would love to hear from you.

Creative Loafing Beer Issue

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

The ILLU764:Illustration for Publication class teamed up with Markus Schneider and the gang at Creative Loafing to do the cover package for their annual Beer Issue! The theme for this year deals with the opposition between the folks who want fewer restrictions on brewing, selling and importing beer in Georgia and the current administration who wants to keep everything bottled up, so to speak. The images all have a Revolutionary theme, and play on the idea of the patriots fighting for their rights against the evil oppressors across the pond.
Look for the Creative Loafing Beer Issue with our grad's artwork outside and in on June 11th, and take in the Atlanta BeerFest in Centennial Olympic Park on Saturday, June 14th. Revolt responsibly, of course!
