Karla Slocumb and Diamond were here at 9:45am on Friday the 28th to kick off the Atlanta Humane Society Pet Parade Poster Challenge. The Pet Parede is an annual fundraising event in which pets and their owners parade through Atlantic Station in wacky costumes. There is a brass band, balloons, and a crazy atmosphere that proved to be lots of fun to try to capture in an illustration. By the way, after her outing to SCAD, Diamond was adopted and is now in a new, happy home! Thanks to whoever adopted this sweet girl!

We had great sponsors this year, which made the event even more special;
Wacom donated a Large Intuos 5 Touch for the Grand Prize, a Medium Intuos 5 Touch for Second Prize, an Intuos 5 Art Pen for Third Prize and an Intuos 5 Grip Pen for Honorable Mention.
Adobe Offered a free one-year membership to Adobe's new Creative Cloud, which gives its members access to every application that Adobe makes, plus online resources and free server space for hosting their websites.
Epson brought in and installed brand new printers for each department in CommArts! The Illustration Department received an R3000 and an R2000 inkjet printer!
