Kristina Carroll - I love my job

James Gurney painting a student
Jim Burke has been doing some amazing things with the illustration program at NHIA, and I am so grateful to be a part of it. The latest big project was coordinating a a demo, a lecture AND a stunning Dinotopia show in our gallery through a partnership with the Norman Rockwell Museum. (up through March 13th) Needless to say the students are ecstatic.(they've been talking about this for months - I love my students. They know what's up.) So I decided to do this sketch of James during his demo, but as I didn't get home until 1pm last night I am only getting to post it now. (btw- that big square in front of him is the laptop monitor pointed at his painting to project it on the big screen in the auditorium. IT didn't look like the most comfortable set-up but didn't prevent James from making a beautiful portrait.)
