Thanks also to Alex Gonzáles for sharing his printing industry expertise. Next Review & Preview… the first week in December! 😊😄😁

Have you checked out the Crate Paper Birthday collection, Hooray yet? Here is a cake pattern I did for the collection.

“My cover art was cropped from a little promo art for the project I’ve been working on since January. All the instrumentation has been recorded, the vocal parts are nearly finalized and I’m diligently animating. Can’t wait to get the songs/animations done so I can show them off. I’m really proud of the material. ’till then I hope you like the artwork.”

SLCC at the Pride Parade

Pride Mix

Sunday, June 5, 2016

SLCC won Third Place / Academic Marchers in the annual Pride Parade held in Salt Lake City on Sunday. Part of the SLCC’s Vision, Mission & Values is Inclusivity – “We seek to cultivate an environment of respect and empathy, advanced by diverse cultures and perspectives.”

This year’s parade featured Mayor Jackie Biskupski, SLC’s first openly gay mayor. And… SLCC was well represented by numerous students, faculty, staff, friends and family. VAD Graphic Design alumnus Austin Record, owner of Austin Record Graphics, designed the t-shirts worn by SLCC participants. Austin is also a Technician II Graphic Designer for SLCC Academic & Career Advising.

From Austin Record:

“SLCC joined the Pride Parade this year and won 3rd place among the academic marchers. It is an honor that my design contributed to this achievement. The design was a combination of ideas from Shellie Jo Enscoe, who is in charge of the Multicultural Department, and Jan Coleman, who is the Marketing Manager, and my artistic abilities. The only requirement was to have the hashtag and the school logo. Since the shirt was to be tie-dye the challenge was to make sure that the hashtag was legible. It’s exciting to know that this design turned out to be a blazing success.”

Congratulations Austin and SLCC for participating in this year’s Pride Parade.

“The cast of the ‘Evil Dead The Musical’ in Las Vegas took a photo with us! They were a really nice group and we don’t usually take selfies so everyone walked away happy.” ~ Magen Mitchell

Matt Page

“It was a bust. I lost money. I am filled with regret.” And later that same day… “It wasn’t the most successful show I’ve done, but I came away inspired and have a lot of ideas to make the rest of the shows I do this year even better. But most importantly I had a lot of fun and bought some awesome new toys for my collection.”~ Matt Page

Austin Record

”Erica Carroll was an amazing person to meet. She is very sincere and loved getting answers about what I thought of ‘Supernatural.’” ~ Austin Record

Keith Beard

”First time going to a comic com with my family. (Jonas– Halo sword, Liam – Blue Mask, and Gram – Halo costume) Unsurprisingly, no one knew who All-mighty Glob was.” ~ Keith Beard and sons

Eliz Brown's kids

“My kids, Kyle Peterson and Josaphine Green. We had a great time. These events get better every time. Artist Alley is where it’s at for merch. There are so many talented people! Also if you get your kids hooked on being a geek they will never have money for drugs!”~ Elizabeth Brown

ALUMNI NEWS: Congratulations Austin!

RECORD, Austin photoFrom Austin:

“After having graduated for the second time from SLCC, I changed job locations to work with the SLCC Academic Advising department as Graphic Designer. These are not the only opportunities that I have, but for now I will be helping out at SLCC.

After graduating in May of 2014 with an AAS in Graphic Design and certificates in Mobile Publishing and Web Graphic Design, I discovered that the AS in Graphic Communications would be opening up for the academic year of 2014 – 2015. Since an AS is “easier” to transfer I continued and graduated in May of 2015.

I am in the process of transferring to the Savannah College of Art & Design to continue my education. I have recently submitted portfolios for transfer credits and scholarships. After my portfolios have been reviewed with the list of what credits transfer, and after I have a financial plan, I will be able to work on my class schedule.”
