You read correctly. We will be designing an official t-shirt for the Temple of Cartoon Mojo! Only the best will be selected for use but is still not guaranteed. This has to be the best of the best, high quality, professional, well designed and illustrated, representative of the students and this group, and overall just amazing! This can not be stressed enough! There is no second place! To prove it, if we do not receive the high quality we absolutely require for this t-shirt design, it will be completed by faculty.
Why are we doing this? This is in preparation for HEROES Convention in Charolette, NC, June 19th to 21st. We have the opportunity to earn the Temple table space in Artists' Alley at the convention! It's not guaranteed though. Graduate students Doug Dabbs and Olu Ajagbe are in charge of collecting work from you students to present to HEROES to get the table approved. (If the table gets approved they will also be in charge of designing that table.) Yet again, we need the best of the best! So please collect your best sequential work and give it to Doug or Olu (or Nolan will also accept it).
So why are we needing better than fantastic work? Because if this happens, if we get a table at HEROES, you will be presenting yourselves at the convention next to professionals in the industry. YOU WILL NEED TO BE JUST AS PROFESSIONAL! This can't be stressed enough. This is an opportunity to get experience behind the tables at a convention, selling your own works, and networking. The t-shirts are for people manning the table and any other SCAD-ATL student who is there helping in order to make us appear just as cohesive as we truly are. We could be a powerhouse if we do this right. So get on it!
And stay tuned for more news on this event as it develops. Could be exciting!
