Featured Student: Zaire

Professor Victoria Martin student work: Zaire

Today I would love to introduce you to another extremely talented student named Zaire. The image above was created in Photoshop 1 as his art history piece.

His influence was Japanese Urban Art and Anime. The colors glow. Check out the halo effect around the upper edge of the beast as he removes the skin from his bones. Sweet and really scary at the same time. 

I also really like the use of contrasting colors. Note the little green tinge around the eyeball. Well done Zaire. This week of Thanksgiving I am thankful to have such wonderful, talented students in my classroom. Thanks for making my job such a joy.

Featured Student: Kacy

Today I would like to give a shout out to Kacy, an extremely talented student . Please take a minute and  view Kacy’s work on Instagram @kacydesign. The following pieces were created in my Graphic Design 2 class this semester.

Above are images created for the Olympic Mascot competition.  Students had to research Chinese culture and the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. These creatures are cheeky and sweet enough to pinch!

The image above was created in Digital Imagery for the Fine Artist and is a work in progress. It’s a digital painting (created in Photoshop) of Frida Kahlo and is inspired by the artist Shepard Fairey’s style. It’s bold and brave just like Kacy and Frida. The image below was  created as an illustration for a children’s book.

And seriously, check out those sketchbook pages. To any other professors out there, this girl is a dream. Always drawing in her sketchbook.

Kacy has a great eye for design and a lovely warm feel to her work. If you visit her on Instagram tell her that she needs to get her work into the hands of companies in need of top notch illustrators. She should be working in the industry. Such talent. Well done Kacy. Thanks for making my job a dream.
