Marshall Arisman: The Space Between Illustration and Fine Art

French Building Auditorium
March 20, 2014, 6:00 pm

With the development of the Internet, the illustrator now has the authority of being in charge of his own medium. Even though editors and art directors still control the magazines the illustrator can now self publish their own content and control the medium that they have chosen. This has posed three main questions to every artist: 1. What to paint? 2. How to paint it? And 3. Is there financial security in being an artist? Marshall Arisman will try to illustrate these points through his own experience and work.
