Society of Illustrators Student Competition

I just found out, Boy's Dream and Mountain are two of four Brigham Young University entries accepted into this year's Society of illustrators Student Exhibition.  I'm humbled and honored to be a part of the show.  The work produced this year is nothing short of inspiring.  
The show opens on Wednesday, May 6th at the Society's gallery in New York and runs through June 6th.  

Congratulations to my immensely talented friend Houston Trueblood who also has two entries in the show  (His 2nd year in a row!!! Spectacular!)   

I owe a big thanks to the amazing teachers here at BYU.  Especially to Robert Barrett and Sam Neilson for their instruction.  If you haven't seen it already, Robert Barrett has a new book:  Life Drawing-How To Portray The Figure With Accuracy and Expression.  He dedicated the book to students.  The explanations on solid/appealing life drawing principles are elaborately demonstrated and can cross over into any discipline.  I highly recommend it to anyone!
