Our very own Iain Burke has a piece featured in the NY Times Book Review!
Art Director, Nicholas Blechman came to the school to speak to Illustration seniors and gave out an assignment for a NY Times Book Review cover illustration. All seniors submitted a piece, and the work was submitted to the Times and they selected Iain’s piece to run on the cover of this week’s Book Review section.
