College Art/Creative Writing

MSU students work on pencil roughs. A student works on finished work in class. Two students discuss a project assignment

I taught illustration at Mississippi State University for nine years.  My students worked with techniques and concepts on a very finished level.  

The program I have in mind for an artist-in-residence program is to take the students from a written text, sketch out ideas for the illustrated page and to proceed to finished art.

Through this exercise, the students gain the experience of taking a written concept such as a narrative and creating a visual world where the characters can exist.
