OOSA artist and MFA Visual Narrative Department Chair Nathan Fox received a Regional Design Award from Print Magazine for his comic-inspired “What’s Your Story” SVA subway posters . THE REGIONAL DESIGN ANNUAL, now in its 32nd year, is the most comprehensive survey of graphic design in the United States, and the only design competition organized by geography. In short, it’s kind of a big deal. Congrats, Nathan!
You can purchase two of the award winning posters (shown above) HERE and HERE. You can also purchase other prints by Nathan Fox in the OOSA Print Shop, including the limited edition Captain Victory Giclee prints.
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
Gear through the ages…
A very interesting look at how the equipment of soldiers on the battlefield has changed over the centuries. From 1066 and the Battle of Hastings to 2014 in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan, the gear is primarily British in focus.
