Society of Illustrators
MAY 4, 2007
Anyone in the New York area: Tonight Friday, May 4th at 5:30PM the Student Scholarship Show will have its opening and awards ceremony at the Society of Illustrators. We intend on giving out over $50,000 in scholarship money to well deserving students.
This year, many-a-Drawger found its way onto the jury including: Randy Enos, Zina Saunders, Steve Wacksman, Dave Bamundo, Joe Ciardello and Peter Cusack to name a few of the great people that helped jury the show.
It's free and has got some amazing illustration like the one pictured above by School of Visual Arts student Christopher Fisher who won a $5,000 scholarship.
There is also a special exhibit starting this year called the '30 years of the Student Show.' Each year from now until 2009 we will show 10 years worth of student artists that 'made it big'! This year is from 1980-1990. Guess who is in this collection? If you said, Tim O'Brien you'd be right! I wonder what his student work looked like? Others include Peter DeSeve, Robert Hunt, Kam Mak and James Ransome.
I hope to see you there!
