Art, politics, angels, demons . . . and righteous dogs.

Illustration Next @ SVA Tuesday

Tuesday Nov. 5, 7PM, at the SVA amphitheater, open to the public.
An update of a lecture I gave in 2010 discussing the work that artists are doing outside the traditional editorial framework. This is in acknowledgement of the changing world we all live in.
I didn’t feel I was doing a complete enough job as teacher (I have both sophomore and senior portfolio classes) unless I could represent, to the best of my ability, a picture of the world of illustration as it is, and what it is becoming.
This is not to say that I feel that print is going away. It is changing in its presence and role. Many of the projects seen in Illustration Next have found their way into books, various new publications. Also web-based entities are finding print to be an interesting iteration of work done online. The main thing that has changed is that artists are becoming much more content-providers and producers. Project ideas originate with us much more now. Of course the phone will ring with projects that we are right for. But these are living more and more, side by side with one’s own projects, born, raised and sent off into the world (and then sending home a golden coin) by artists.

More than ever the world of illustration is the stuff that dreams are made of. Here, below, are a few of the more than 50 artists who will be featured in our talk.
All colleagues and students very welcome.
Here are a few of the many artists participating:
