‘State of Contemporary Illustration’ Highlights

During the Parkland College Graphic Design Student Show reception on Wednesday, May 11, I gave a brief lecture highlighting professional and student illustrators. Below, I’ve provided some highlights from my lecture.

I discussed the exciting world of commercial illustration created for product, book, editorial, concept, product, and advertising.  Visit Giertz Gallery from May 9–28 to view more great examples of student illustrative work.
