Through a partnership created with POKETO
, Parsons Illustration held a wildly successful wallet jam on Sunday. The six-hour event yielded more than 60 entries for our Poketo competition. Judging of the ever-so-tasty submissions took place the next day with Angie and Ted from Poketo, American Illustration’s Mark Heflin and our own departmental chair, Steven Guarnaccia.
POKETO designs limited edition art products, accessories, apparel and decor, taking art off gallery walls and making it part of everyday life. Congrats to our winners: Sophia Chang, Stella Jiyeun Lee, Shu Okada, Emmanuel Tavares and Chris Yip! And thanks to everyone who participated!
The Poketo Wallet Jam is this Sunday, September 28th! The Illustration department is hosting the event in rooms 802 and 803 at 2 West 13th Street.
Poketo is partnering with Parsons for this special competition. It’ll culminate during Illustration week in NYC. Students are invited to attend the Jam to create artwork for submission to Poketo. There’ll be a judging happening on Monday, September 29th and the top five pieces will be produced as a limited edition line of wallets.
Attendance at the Jam is mandatory for competition participation. It starts at 11 and ends at 5. The rooms will be stocked with supplies, cookies, pizza and music so don’t miss it! We’ll send out more emails this week to remind y’all about it. In the meantime, email Noël if you have any questions!
