Society Student Scholarship Exhibit

Last Friday was the Society of Illustrators’ annual student scholarship exhibition. By the numbers, this is harder to get into than any of the professional illustration shows -- 100 works are selected from 5,000 -- and the quality of work shows it. This exhibit is fantastic each year. I went in looking to say hi to three artists in particular. I was eventually able to hunt them down by their names tags. All turned out to be extremely personable, smart, and excited to be there. As one said, "I'm hanging in the same gallery as Norman Rockwell!" If past shows are to judge, then many of these students will go on to prominent careers. It's great to watch the conversation continue.

Lots of people, lots and lots of people.

Wow. It's pretty amazing and a little disheartening to see some of the work that comes out of the student show every year. After looking through the portfolio's in the links you provided, I'm rather impressed with the work both Eric and Chris are doing (I've seen some of Eric's work on CA, but had no idea he was still in school). I guess it goes to show that good things are happening in Art schools these days, despite all the negativity I've heard in the industry.

I knew the Metin2 gold so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the Metin2 yang that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the Cheap metin2 yang together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to Buy metin2 gold more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some Cheap metin2 gold as the gifts to encourage me.
