Emily Carr Visits

We were delighted to have twenty students from Emily Carr University in Vancouver visit the studio last week. A group of three instructors headed up by Durwin Talon brought the students to Brooklyn for the afternoon. These will be the first graduates of the new illustration program headed up by Durwin.

This is the largest group we've had to date and space was tight. We had a discussion about the industry, reviewed a number of portfolios and answered questions. Each student was given a copy of last year's 3x3 Illustration Directory and quite a number of the students purchased our new book, Nuts & Bolts: A blueprint for a successful illustration career. And they blew me away when they asked for an autographed copy!
