One week from tonight is the discussion, Illustration Next, at SVA. The evening will be devoted to an exploration of places illustration is and may be going, as led by three fairly recent SVA grads. Many colleagues will be on hand as well to talk about their experiences. I have some 150 images from about 50 artists. Marshall Arisman will give us a backgrounder and intro. His and Steve Heller’s book, Marketing Illustration, was a major inspiration for this talk. As a teacher I can’t think of a more important topic to spend time with. It’s one thing to discuss with students how art is made stronger and clearer. It’s quite another to help them through the minefield that is this new era. So here we begin the conversation. Everything is on the table. This and a similar talk at SCAD in April have inspired others at schools across the country. Julie Lieberman, Anita Kunz and I are working on setting up a single website to hold all the videos as an ongoing resource for students everywhere.
