Only 250 works were chosen from over 7,500 submissions by a jury of 25 renowned illustrators, artists, art directors, and designers. It is a high honor and a great achievement. The student work will be exhibited at the Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators this May. There will also be an accompanying full color catalog. Congratulations too, to the the faculty that guided them with these winning pieces.

29, “squash,” Gouache and Acrylic on Canvas,45 x 45 ", 2015, Lauren Redniss, Thesis My overall goal with this series of drawings and paintings is to bring forward the theme of sports in the context of fine arts. This specific subject was chosen bescause of its significance in societies around the world. As a subject, it touches on issues of nationalism, spectacle, and my personal, the common human experience. This work is based mostly memory and skill. By tying the sport directly to the action of creating the work, my pieces will rethink the identities and abilities of individual athletes, thus showing a more total and universal appreciation of the performance. The drawings will not try to be realistic at all, shifting our notion of sports imagery and questioning high definition, hence presenting sports in its raw nature: pure emotion. The strokes, colors and quality of the works will be used to call into question the viewer’s memory of specific moments, shedding light on ideas of collective recollection.

Image number 3 "Classroom" mixed media painting 19x22" Senior Thesis- Chang Park, Fall 2015 For my thesis project I would like to explore the worlds that exist within Haruki Murakami’s novels and short stories. I would focus specifically on Kafka On The Shore, The Elephant Vanishes, Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, and 1Q84. What appeals to me about these stories is the existence of an alternate world and how characters and strange incidents parallel one another in each world. Rather than illustrating each novel or story on its own I would like to layer and mesh many of the different worlds together to create a new scenario that seems familiar yet removed.
