Watch as Steven contributes to the episode, The Art Of Illustration. Illustrators articulate what a photograph cannot. Using an array of techniques and styles, illustrators evoke stories and meaning in a variety of mediums, from editorial illustration in magazines and newspapers, to comics books, to activist media. And as their tasks over the years have become less informational and more expressive, their individual voice as artists becomes all the more critical and beautiful, revealing an exciting and awe-inspiring age of illustration.

This past spring Juniors Franca Barone, Kristin Chae, Leigh Cunningham, Meghann Stephenson, and Janet Sung were selected by the faculty as our school’s nominees for the the Society of Illustrators Zankel Scholarship. The annual competition is open to full-time Illustration majors completing their Junior Year from schools throughout the United States. A renowned jury of illustrators chooses one student- the best of the Junior class- and financially supports the student’s Senior year with a scholarship of $20,000. We were very proud to have them represent the Parsons Illustration Program.
