Slot Machines and Giant Dogs | A Peek into the MFA Illustration Practice 2017 Thesis Exhibition

Last Fri­day, I attend­ed the open­ing of the MFA Illus­tra­tion Prac­tice the­sis exhi­bi­tion at the Mary­land Insti­tute Col­lege of Art (MICA). As an alum of the pro­gram, I’m always fas­ci­nat­ed to see how the the­sis projects turn out. These are mas­sive endeav­ors that take a whole school-year of work (your sec­ond year is ded­i­cat­ed to them), and even longer to plan. To say they’re involved is an under­state­ment.

Tomi Vollauschek of Fl@33 » Lecture at MICA tonight!


My grad­u­ate pro­gram, MICA’s MFA Illus­tra­tion Prac­tice, has some super amaz­ing illus­tra­tors vis­it. They cri­tique our work, run work­shops, and give lec­tures. The first year stu­dents have been work­ing with Tomi Vol­lauschek, who is one half of FL@33, a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary design stu­dio run out of Lon­don.

Togeth­er with his part­ner Agathe Jacquil­lat, they work on a vari­ety of projects. And when I say vari­ety, I mean vari­ety. They pub­lish books, devel­op iden­ti­ties, illus­trate, design cloth­ing, and more. It’s real­ly inspir­ing to see this type of range. When so many are focused on a spe­cif­ic style, I like to see those that aren’t — ones that uti­lize prob­lem solv­ing as the main medi­um in which they work.

If you like Tomi’s work and are local to Bal­ti­more, why not come to his lec­ture tonight at MICA?  He’ll be speak­ing at 7PM in Fav­ley Hall in the Brown Cen­ter (the pointy glass build­ing).
