Student Spotlight: Spring 19 Roundup #1

I've been teaching adult cartooning courses at SVA for over a decade now, and so have gotten to see many students achieve amazing successes.

Maddie Dai cartoons regularly for The New Yorker.  She was included in a show at the Society of Illustrators and an article in Paste magazine. Maddie also contributes longer pieces to The New Yorker and other publishers. Really great stuff. But there's more:

Jeremy Fuscaldo continues to amaze as he pursues his MFA in Visual Arts. Come see Jeremy this weekend at East Coast Comic Con, booth 718.

Consuelo Terra's new graphic novel will be published this year from Random House in Chile. These pages from the book were produced for my Inking Comics course in 2016. "It was a great leap for my  inking and drawing techniques," Consuelo says.

Earl Holloway makes his living from comic book style beer labels and other products. Here's his cover to a video game which comes with his comic synopsis.

Anna Laytham contributed the comic above to the New York Times Kids' section recently. She tells me, "they specifically referenced the comic I made in your class when they reached out!"

It all starts with that first mini comic. That's how cartooning careers begin. Let's get started:
Inking Comics is on Tuesdays, Figure Drawing for Cartoonists Wednesdays, and Cartooning Basics Thursdays, beginning the first week of June.

Since putting out the call for news and updates, I've been hearing from a number of students. Look for another of these roundups in a couple of days. If you're one of those I missed, please check in and tell us how it's going. Meanwhile, come say Hi tonight, May 16, at the info session.
