Graphic Design Alumni Working It!

Alisa Bishop at Geek Girl Con in Seattle.

“Steff (on the left) and I at Geekgirlcon! Booth 227! We’re here all weekend!”


Matt Page at Zombie Home Evening.

“…my zombie art show and book signing was pushed back until Monday the 17th. Which also gives me another couple of days to make new original art to display and sell that night. Make a family night out of it. I hope to see you there!”


Jill DeHaan illustrates book covers and lettering projects.

“So fun to get work in the mail! 2 of 3 covers I created for Carrie Doyle’s ‘Hamptons Murder Mystery Series.’ Thanks @dunemerebooks for the fun opportunity!”


Keith Beard curates “Welcome to My World” at his Miri Gallery.

“About the show: When words fail to express the emotions associated with mental health struggles, art opens a powerful avenue of communication. ‘Welcome to My World: Mental Health Awareness Through Art’ is a juried exhibition featuring artists from across the United States, and aims to promote resilience and hope, as well as raise awareness about mental health.”


Kudos to VAD Alumni! Graphic Design grads do it all!
