Robert Young('15), and Jasjyot Singh Hans('17), have multiple pieces chosen to appear in the American Illustration Online Gallery.
Ricardo Nuñez Suarez
"Collage. In these series, I extract the referential drawing, characteristic of the scientific illustration and mix it with collage. All done by hand and combined digitally. The idea was to produce decorative pieces for fashion or interior design."
"Girl Gang. Is a self-initiated project showcasing the language and phrases to empower women. This piece is hand-lettered and hand embroidered, to contrast the message with the contemporary feel of hand-lettered calligraphy, yet the subtleties and delicacy of hand embroidered work."
Eduardo TLaloC Corral
"Self promotional illustration poster exclusively made for the creative collective TOCTOC. The illustration is part of a series of fictional worlds based on Jorge Luis Borges book FICCIONES and a ludic twist on brutalist architecture."
Mai Ly Degnan
"Treat Yourself. February 2016. Personal piece for Galentines Day."
"Record release gig poster for Operator Music Band. February 2017."
"Cooking Spinach Between the Legs. February 2017. Illustration for an article about food porn and Stephanie Sarley's artworks, for an Istanbul based magazine." (Calling magazine)
"Viva La Mujer. January 2017. We are in a moment of political and ideological resistance, with women leading the charge. These posters are from the Women's March in January 2017 to be carried in Washington D.C. and in sister-marches from San Diego to Barcelona."
"Scumlords are a set of 30 characters I designed using a limited color palette and the idea that all of these characters should be bad, scummy people. I was thinking Mad Max mixed with M.U.S.C.L.E toys."
Jasjyot Singh Hans
"Peel, the series, is a celebration of body. The series explores clothing as artifice, and body positivity as the figure sheds her layers successively in the nine images."
"The title of the image borrows from the optical phenomenon Dazzle Camouflage used during World War I, and uses optical illusion in an exploration of fashion, form and volume. the final design was screenprinted with the ruffled fabric as a glow-in-the-dark element."
