Thursday with John Foster
Thursday morning John Foster critiqued the work of Professor Jim Thorpe's ARTT352 class. The students were drafting different imagery options for an annual report. It will be interesting to watch how John's fresh perspective will influence this in-progress work.
After critiquing their work, John proceeded to share his work with the students.
The common adage of genius being one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration rang true for this project. John quickly developed the concept for this cover, but finding just the right book to make the concept come to fruition proved a much more difficult task.
John has used many different aesthetic styles in his work from photorealism to hand lettering to mixed media.
