SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS SHOW
The 50th Anniversary Society Of Illustrators
Show Comes To Campus
The SFCC Graphic Design Club brought the "2009 Society of Illustrators Traveling Show" to Campus in May
An annual tour of 40 original works selected from the Society's Annual Exhibition has been offered to colleges for the past 27 years. These 40 works are a representative sample of the best in the six catagories of the Annual, Sequential, Editorial, Book, Advertising, Institutional and Uncommisioned. Some of this year's featured artists include Brad Holland,, Sterling Hundley, Mike Benny, Jody Hewgill, Yuko Shimizu and Anita Kunz. Of the artists in each show, some are familiar and some are the rising stars of tomorrow.
The Society of Illustrators founded in 1901, has ahd a long distinguished history. On February 1, 1901, a group of nine artists and one advising businessman founded the Society with this credo: "The object of the Soaciety shall be to promote generally the art of illustration and to hold exhibitions from time to time. "The first monthly dinners were attended by such prominent illustrators as Howard Pyle, Maxfield Parrish, N.C. Wyeth, Charles Dana Gibson, Fredric Remington, James Montgomery Flagg, Howard Chandler Christy and special guests like Mark Twain and Gloria Swanson.
Based out of New York City, the mission of the Society is to promote the art and appreciation of illustration, as well as its history and evolving nature, and to encourage high ideals through exhibitions, lectures, education, and by fostering a sense of community and open discussion.

GRAPHIC DESIGN CLUB UPDATE
From the President Julie Edmiston
FROM THE MACBOOK PRO OF THE PREZ: In this time of National Presidential change, I am sad that my reign has been short and its time to hand over the pen tool, but I feel I have made a difference here at Spokane Falls Community College for the Graphic Design Club. I first want to say that when you have an awesome team like I did it truely helps carry out crazy ideas. Jason, Areile, Liz and Tyler, are the best team anyone can have behind them and I am honored to have worked with them this year. Being in charge is a huge responsibality, thinking about the good of the whole of the Club, weighed heavly on my mind this year and as always with me, unity and inclusion, has always been on the top of my list. An while being an eccentric, I have had some crazy ideas that worked and some that didnt. My encouragement/challange to you is to voice those crazy ideas, when ever you can, beacuse if you never try, you’ll never win the prize. While you still want to keep and maintain empoyment, sometimes being willing to take a chance to voice yourself will put you at the top of the list and keep you in good with the boss. Looking back on this time as Prez from the Rez, I feel humble that I was allowed to change the way things were happening with the program and I am specificily speaking about the Portfolio Show and the way our concepts would be chosen. Prior years, web and print came up with their own ideas and one was chosen from each. This year I spoke up, wanting more unity between web and print wanting a whole concept that could be carried thru from print to web to the show. We came up with a group concept, teams of print & web designers, just like a real design studio. The concepts choosen and presented were awesome and you’ll just have to wait to see which team’s concept was choosen. Keep checking your email and your mail box. And the sky. I like sky writers. I wonder if thats in the budget?! Where’s my secretary?!! Peace out!!! Julie
