Ode to Students

I want to take a break from my work and pay homage to some of my students, past and present.

Once in awhile I receive little gems of appreciation that rejuvenates my inspiration as both an illustrator and instructor. These are completely unnecessary but greatly appreciated, especially because I am fully aware of the insane schedules these students have. The fact that they take the time to create something out of want rather than obligation is heartwarming to say the least.

So I decided to feature a few of these small tokens that I hang in my studio.

Me and my dog. You know what they say about owners looking like their dogs. Uncanny.

Left to Right: Sam Cox, Laura Bushinski. Moore College of Art and Design.

Maybe I was a basset hound in my past's the hair/ears.

Audrey Fatula. University of the Arts.

Audrey created this beautiful little wallet. Hand crafted and sewed. It's almost too beautiful to use!

A big thank you to my students and the fresh inspiration they bring.
