If you are going to be a student in the Illustration Department next year, your very own copy of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi!

We are using a new translation (put out by the New York Review of Books) by Geoffrey Beck which features a foreword by Umberto Eco.  In addition to an earlier post about more classical illustrations of the book by Mussino, we’ll be featuring some more information about the book, the story, and the art of Pinocchio here on the blog, so keep your eyes open for that!

Come by today and get your copy!

Reminder: Important Class Schedule Changes for this Week!

In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday, the university will be closed Thursday, November 27 through Sunday, November 30.  The Illustration Office will be closed Tuesday through Friday.

There will be class schedule changes during the week of November 24. These changes are necessary in order to fulfill the number of class sessions during the academic semester.


Tuesday classes will not meet. Instead, any class that regularly meets on Thursdays will meet on Tuesday, November 25 at the regular times and locations.

Classes that start before 4:00 p.m. will not meet, which means NO ILLUSTRATION DEPARTMENT COURSES WILL BE RUNNING.  However, all classes starting at 4:00 p.m. or later will meet.
