BFA Illustration Alum Leah Hayes Publishes Book

NOTFUNNYHAHA-cover

Leah Hayes, former Illustration student and faculty member, published Not Funny Ha-Ha, a bold and slightly wry graphic novel about two young women going through abortions. It’s a little bit technical, a little bit moving, and often funny, in a format uniquely suited to communicate.

The book is available for pre-order here.

Early press for Not Funny Ha-Ha:

“A woman’s written a comic book about abortion and everyone should read it”- Metro UK

“Hayes’ illustrations are straightforward and witty. She defines technical terms and medical processes while still managing to capture the deeply personal, human side of the reproductive decisions a woman makes.” – Huffington Post

“Conveys a feeling of comfort and openness, while also conveying the weight of the topic.” – Buzzfeed

“A serious work that aims to ease anxiety and bring clarity.” – Bitch Media

” Judgement-free, but still witty and brutally honest enough to demystify the topic.” – Ravishly

“An amazingly thoughtful, empathetic guide to abortion.”- Listen to the Publisher’s Weekly More to Come podcast interview with Leah

AMT and Illustration Faculty Steven Guarnaccia to Exhibit Work at Nobrow ELCAF in London

Steven Guarnaccia

Work by Steven Guarnaccia

AMT Illustration Faculty Member Steven Guarnaccia will be featuring his exhibition titled, Fatherland, at the upcoming Nobrow’s ELCAFestival in London. The exhibition will be on view from June 20 – 27th. Fatherland originally opened this spring at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

About the exhibition: Guarnaccia’s childhood, family history and fraught relationship with his father are the themes of this exhibition. The show features a series of transformed objects, which Guarnaccia dedicates to the memory of his father: painted shoes, vests, pipes, duckpins and rusty saws, along with wooden shirts and paper neckties made by the artist. Guarnaccia emblazons these objects with patterns, puns and emblematic phrases from his childhood. The objects suggest a narrative, an interplay of images and words that explore notions of memory, father-son relationships and coming of age.
