Tomorrow my Senior Illustration students along with their RIT colleagues will graduate from college. RIT has prepared them well to transition into the role of professional artists. I want to wish them the very best and I will be looking for their names in the credit lines!
Happy almost Friday everyone! Tomorrow I’m heading on a mini road trip to be a part of the birthday celebration for my grandmother. She’s turning 94! But I still wanted to share a few things with you before the end of the week.
RIT has posted the official photo of the RIT #26 BIG SHOT event (click on the photo to enlarge it). It looks great! I find it truly amazing that all that dramatic lighting came from a crowd of volunteers clicking flashes on cameras and waving flashlights in the air. Apparently there were over 1000 volunteers to help light The Strong Museum of Play. Wow.
To give you a better sense of how all the volunteers illuminated the museum our local Rochester news station produce a short video on it. You can actually see D and I in the background when they show the trees with the sculpture. We were standing on the sidewalk behind that metal sculpture!
In other design news, the BBC aired a funny video on the evangelical frenzy over the Apple brand. The story features a grand opening of an Apple Store in London and the ruckus it causes. I enjoyed the laugh and hope you do too. Happy weekend!
