I can't. Too fast! But, that being said, here is the finals schedule for ART 3210, Fall 2008:

ART 3210-001, 12/12/2008 F, 10:30 AM~12:30 PM ARTB 108
ART 3210-002, 12/12/2008 F, 08:00 AM~10:00 AM ARTB 108

Section 001 is the lucky duck this time around. For section 002, that 8 am start time is brutal- just remember it's brutal for all of us! We'll have special holiday fare at our finals, though, so don't be late (we have to crit right away 'cause we only have two hours). You're very sad about the time limit, I know.

We'll be holding critique on "Pirates" that day, and you'll turn in your Free Text Friday notebooks as well, so the forthcoming two weeks are your opportunity to catch up on those!



There's a page at the wiki for you to read- tells you to upload your sketches by Friday, November 21st. I'll look at them then. In the meantime, you'all should comment on each other's work as well.

Hey Folks,

If you haven't yet uploaded your piece to our wiki, please do that right away:  here is the link

Also, would each of you please go there and post your e-mail address (on the page that says "e-mail addresses" so that jurors in the competition have contact information.


Wow! How Great Was THAT?!

Hey Contestants! Are we so lucky or what?! All of this illustration firepower in our midst for a true in-depth experience! This was a crazy-good way for us to learn about the creative inner (and outer) workings of four top author-illustrators.

We really put them to work (as evidenced by their weary countenances upon leaving UConn, Husky Water bottles in hand), but they happily obliged. There was a little (a lotta, actually) something for everyone as we learned about the client-artist working relationship, how to get started professionally, how to generate ideas and your own creative space, how to conceptualize an entire book before finalizing the art, and on and on and on. I wish they could've stayed a week! I'll bet they did too, seeing as how food magically appeared every few hours (courtesy of our very own Dodd Center) and the hotel has a pool.

But seriously, wouldn't you love to have these guys and gal back sometime soon? You betcha! Don't forget, you can always send a postcard (of your work, silly) to your new illustration BFF's to say "hey" now and then.
