Jessica’s sketchbooks for a RISD class

Just amazing work.

Jessica writes,
“Also, I just finished a short class at RISD that got the gears going and thought I’d send along a few sketchbook pages from the class. It was fun and I hope to keep it up!”

We asked Jon Cannell to do robot imagery for his banner for the Surtex booth.

Jon did this image and we had it printed on fabric seven feet tall for our Surtex show booth. Luv ya, man.
He got a LOT of interest in this piece. For example, lap top skins.
