Faculty Updates

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Ruth Marten, Barbara Segal, Ilene Strizver, and Steve Brodner.

From "Fountains & Alligators" by Ruth Marten

From “Fountains & Alligators” by Ruth Marten

Ruth Marten was featured in The New Yorker for her illustrated collection, Fountains & Alligators. For the series, Marten uses ink and watercolor to seamlessly transform Victorian prints into “crocodile cohabitation” and other surreal, waterlogged tableaux.

Barbara Segal carves Hermés Birkins from stone, as described in the New York Post. The Post writes, “Her ‘bags’ are true to size and bear immaculate detailing, including the status tote’s signature leather folds, tight stitching and even the lock.” See her work in person in a group show, Emerging to Established, on view at Krause Gallery in NYC from Sept. 7 through Oct. 5.

From Ilene Strizver's "TypeTalk"

From Ilene Strizver’s “TypeTalk”

Ilene Strizver updated TypeTalk, her excellent typography blog at CreativePro. In “How to Work with a Lettering Artist,” Strizver consults leading lettering artists. Each artist describes a creative process that includes research, sketches, and digital output. The artists also share ideas about what they need from art directors: “Tips for a good job with me.”

Steve Brodner for the L.A. Times

Steve Brodner for the L.A. Times

Steve Brodner illustrated The Home Stretch, an Op-Ed parody for the L.A. Times of the last days of campaign 2016. Despite this election’s ceaseless absurdity, Brodner’s chronicles always find room for more.

Student Artwork Update: Kyle Rose

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

We are pleased to present comics artwork by SVACE student Kyle Rose, as part of our exhibition of student work from Tom Motley’s courses. Kyle created his work in and in conjunction with Illustration and Cartooning courses through several recent semesters.

Kyle Rose, “The Working Stiff"

Kyle Rose, “The Working Stiff”

In his own words:

Kyle has been an artist almost as long as he has been a nerd. He received a BFA in Graphic Design from Western Michigan University and has been taking CE classes at SVA for the last 3 years. He has worked as a designer/art director in advertising for almost a decade. His real passion is telling stories— some with images, some with words, but usually with both. His comic strip “The Working Stiff” can be found at workingstiffcomic.com and his autobio comics can be found at composedcomics.com. He lives in New York City with his wife, Liza, and their cat Izzy.

He also writes:

“The Working Stiff” is about a sentient zombie who holds down an office job in New York City— because even the dead have to make a living. It started as a limited run webcomic gag strip and has now turned in to a weekly ongoing series. I plan on collecting the first year of the strip in print this fall. While this project isn’t something I directly created for a specific CE class, it wouldn’t have been possible without them. Everything I have learned from that last 3 years has culminated with this strip and it continues to evolve with every additional class I take. You can find it at workingstiffcomic.com or on Tapastic at tapastic.com/series/The-Working-Stiff.

And:

“The Cover Up” is a short story that is part of my larger autobio body of work, collectively called “Composed Comics.” And if you are wondering, yes not only I did get the job, but I still work there today. This short was created initially as a mini-comic for Tom Motley’s “Cartooning Basics” course. Since then it has been slightly fine-tuned and will appear in, Emanata, an anthology I have put together with several other SVA CE students. Emanata will be available in local comic shops and online very soon. You can find “The Cover Up” at composedcomics.com or as part of the forth coming anthology: “Emanata”, follow emanatacomic.com for updates and places to buy.
