Illustration Today A Symposium on the State of the Art 66 W. 12th St. Tishman Auditorium Sat, Nov 11 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Ticket Price: See below.
Presented by Parsons The New School for Design and the Department of Illustration Through images, illustration shows us who we are by rendering how we perceive, interact with, and think about the world. But the medium is at a crossroads: the traditional forms of editorial illustration are losing their dominance, new vistas are rapidly opening up, and older avenues are being reinvented. Over two-dozen leading practitioners will talk about and engage in spirited discussions on a range of topics. Steven Guarnaccia, Parsons Illustration Department Chair and former New York Times art director and Dan Nadel, Parsons Illustration Department Assistant Professor and publisher of The Ganzfeld, will moderate the symposium.
Tickets: $10 general admission; FREE with Parsons/New School ID and for Parsons alumni (1 per person, must be picked up from the Box Office). Email email@example.com or call 212.229.5488. Ticket Info: The New School Box Office, 66 West 12th St., Main Fl., Monday-Thursday 1-8 p.m., Friday 1-7 p.m.
2008: Update: Since this thread remains the TOP post in terms of responses I thought I'd add this clarification about it. Back when Drawger started, there was about 20 illustrators testing out a new idea by Mr. Zimmerman. Nobody was looking in, we posted whatever we wanted, we were having fun. One night I tried to post a video with an song in it. It was late, I could not get it to work, I quit and went to bed. Unknown to me, the title remained up and late nighters like Edel and Bob started to have some fun. The rest is history.
He said to me, "Hey let me show you my new Cupola".
55 Year old surfer dude Craigy gave me a tour of his new media room. He cut a hole in his roof bought $500 bucks worth of wood and built a little room on his roof above his bedroom.
Pretty cool, he had TV and the computer on one screen.
Craiggy at the controls.
The boys watch the green sea turtles.
Flag whipped by the constant wind, they last about two months.
