February is an amazing month at SCAD-Atlanta. This Friday is Luba Lukova at 1pm in rooms 256 to 258 (the class rooms behind the hub), who is an amazing poster designer/illustrator that I've had the pleasure to meet, and she's terrific.
Then it's OUR TURN!!
Sam Weber is a true rising star in the Illustration community. His work is smart, beautiful and haunting. And this guy is just getting started.
Anita Kunz has won every accolade an illustrator can aspire to, and then some. She's been at this for some time and can speak to what has worked in the past as well as what newbies have to do to compete in this new world of illustration.
Each guest has a unique but valuable view of our chosen profession, which has morphed into a huge, scary, but potentially lucrative mix of traditional print-based work, new media, and gallery work as well. We've tried to cover all the bases here, and to miss it is to miss out on a LOT of great artwork and priceless information!
So, mark your calendars for the weekend of the 19th-21st. Anita and Sam will show their work and talk about their careers on Thursday the 19th from 5 to 9pm in room 347 (the Cintiq/Sequential Art lab). It will be small and informal, and space will be limited so come early for a good seat.
Friday the 20th is set aside for demos: Anita will be in 379 from 11am to noon, then Sam will go from 2 to 4pm.
Saturday the 21st is Portfolio Review day: Reviews will be from 10am to noon, and again from 2pm to 5pm. Sign-up sheets are on Rick's office door, room 381. The review times are filling up, so don't wait or you'll miss out...no rain-checks!
