Photos from the Opening & Video of the Show

The reception for Little Red Riding Hood & other Stories was great fun despite me getting a nice cold just in time and I’d like to thank everyone who came out to it. Here are a few pics from the show. I’ve had so much positive feedback regarding the show, including people telling me that it inspired them to try their own hand at illustrating the story of Little Red. Well. I believe it was officially a success then. Here is a video I made of the show in case you didn’t get the chance to check it out and would like to take a look via the internets.

For some more very sweet pics of the show check out Amy Warkentin’s blog downhomeamy. Thanks Amy!

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been teaching at Emily Carr for three years already, but it’s true. So many talented students took my course, and now it is my pleasure to be able to share some of the work that they produced in class with the public. The show titled ‘Little Red Riding Hood and Other Stories – The Making of a Picture Book’ presents work that Continuing Studies students created in my level 1 and level 2 Illustration for Picture Book courses.The majority of the show is dedicated to student’s interpretations of the timeless tale of little red riding hood, which is one of the assignments given in class. Students have one week to complete assignments.

Continuing Studies programs are great because of a number of reasons but I think mainly because anyone can take them. I always have a great mix of people in my classes and I know that all of them really want to be in the class and are genuinely interested in the subject matter. It makes teaching so much fun. Sure, I groan about the prep and admin work from time to time but in the end every time I’m actually in the classroom and have people come in, excited to learn and with great work it’s so worth it.

So this show is a tribute to all of my past students, the effort they put into the course, the work that they made, and the things that they taught me.

Come and check it out!
