Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Illustration, Maine College of Art | 0 comments

It’s been a busy coupla weeks getting back into the classroom rhythm at Maine College of Art. A new banner sporting a roaring bear illustrated by recent illustration graduate Hannah Rosengren was a delight to see.


The illustration studio gained more space in the Karu Media Collective wing. Here department chair Scott Nash shares announcements with students. Cool news: the new MECA Illustration Film Series, which kicks off next week with Cartoon College at SPACE Gallery.


Charles Hively, editor and design director of 3 x 3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration, joined us for the second year, this time with a hands-on workshop on marketing for illustrators. After his intriguing presentation, students shared summer projects for his review.


Sometimes, old school things can make a difference. Like getting Maylines for each work station. Junior illustration major Desiree Weigand is excited.


Our iIllustration majors are off and running with new projects, and plenty to explore, including the new Maurice Sendak show. Let the rumpus begin!
