My recent trip to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah left me feeling as though I’d seen one of those must see things in one’ lifetime. Nestled between the Rockies are some of the nicest folks you’ll ever care to meet. This is a series of a shots taken by Greg Newbold, a fine illustrator and one heck of a host. Shown here is a drawing done during Robert Barrett’s morning class. The night before, I arrived in Salt Lake City at 7pm after a missed connection flight. My lecture, scheduled for 7pm didn’t begin until nearly 9pm and lasted until 11:00pm give or take. The next day was full of 4 demos and a visit to Bethanne Anderson’s Illustration History Class. More to come in the next post.
“If life moved at a steady speed and constant direction, then art would not survive. We need only lead the beast with the proper trajectory to take it down. But life lives, and we must choose to take it or to tame it. Art is us run-through-the-world and the world-run-through-us.”
The first two to “Like” The Blue Collar/White Collar FB page and respond correctly here to the following questions will receive the “Town Destroyer” Limited Edition (300) 3-color Screen Print from artist Sterling Hundley.
“Town Destroyer” is the first in a series of pieces created to reflect “History never told” from the point of view of those that were conquered, not the victors that wrote the history.
1. Who is depicted in the “Town Destroyer” print?
2. Which people referred to this leader as “Town Destroyer”?
3. What is their native word for “Town Destroyer”?
“Illustration is Blue Collar – both pervasive and accessible. It is art that must survive in spite of commerce and function. There is a desperation to the thing; illustration that doesn’t work doesn’t eat. Given limitations in time to communicate and the space in which to do it, illustration must answer a question.
Fine Art is White Collar – reclusive with airs of mystery and sophistication. It is pursued. Given the abundance of space in which it is viewed and the time which it is afforded, fine art has the luxury of asking a question.”
Any thoughts on which of the two images would make a better 3 color LE Screen Print? With or without type? Can you let me know if you’d like to own one- $30 + ship price range, signed, numbered (100-250) 18” x 24”? Thanks!
