This month marks my fifth summer teaching in the School of Visual Arts Residency. Each year, a diverse group of students from around the world gather to immerse themselves in the New York illustration scene. As usual, this year's crop produced a stunning array of work. Here is just a small sampling from this terrific group. [Links to their instagram pages can be found with each image.]
This week brought to a close another June of teaching Illustration at the School of Visual Arts Summer Residency. Now in it’s tenth year, the residency gives artists a chance to immerse themselves in the New York illustration world through a rigorous program of coursework, as well as visits with professionals, organizations, and exhibitions.
Focusing on narrative illustration, my class guides students through the creation of a series of images inspired by a text of their choosing. As a teacher, it’s incredibly rewarding to see the development of these projects, from sketches to finished art, culminating with their Open Studios exhibition at the end of course.
Below is just a small sampling of work from this talented group.
