Congratulations to Jadxia Carbajal, Christian Dantzler and Jessica Hong for having work selected to screen in the 2018 Rarebit Animation Festival at Queensborough Community College. Additionally, the jury awarded Jadxia Carbajal’s film Battery, about her personal experience with Type I Diabetes, the top honor and she took home the 2018 Rarebit Award.
Christian Dantzler’s film, Ruptured, was about learning to love while simultaneously navigating childhood society was created using Flash and Photoshop, as well as some traditional pencil on paper techniques. Both Christian and Jadxia’s films were two-semester projects in Professor Grella’s ARTS 370 Animated Documentary course.
Jessica Hong’s film Ghost Ice Cream is a humorous yarn about a ghost that is in love with ice cream. Hong, an upcoming senior, created her film in Professor Cowan’s Intro to Animation course. She is currently working on a film about irrational fears, to be finished in December.
This was the second year for the Rarebit Animation Festival which takes its name from Dream of the Rarebit Fiend, the innovative and often surreal comic strip by one-time Sheepshead Bay resident Winsor McCay (c.1867-1934). Perhaps best known for his popular strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, McCay was a pioneer in the art of animation–his cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) was one of the very first animated films ever created.

Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s greatest architect, and his visionary legacy lives on at Taliesin West. Wright’s sprawling desert masterpiece, located in Scottsdale, Arizona, is an environment like no other.
A utopian world unto itself, Taliesin West is simple, elegant, and perfectly in harmony with the surrounding Southwestern landscape. It’s bustling, yet serene. Prehistoric, yet modern. Familiar, but exotic. Incomparable inspiration can be found everywhere you turn.
One designer will be chosen to spend 12 months living and working at this extraordinary place. The work will include traditional graphic design, magazine design, marketing, signage, product design, and other projects related to the full spectrum of Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation programming.
Throughout the Fellowship, the selected designer will be mentored by Michael Bierut of Pentagram (pentagram.com). The Fellowship includes room and board at Taliesin West and an annual salary of $20,000, plus health benefits. The term may begin as soon as October 2017. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create in the same space where Frank Lloyd Wright reimagined architecture.
Submit the following materials by September 4, 2017 to Jeff Goodman,
Director of Marketing and Communication at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation at JGoodman@FrankLloydWright.org:

Every year since 1981 the Society of Illustrators holds the annual Student Scholarship Competition. This year, a little over 200 works were chosen from more than 8,000 entries submitted by professors of college-level students nationwide. The work is judged by professional illustrators and art directors. Pieces are accepted based on the quality of technique, concept and skill of medium used.
Jiemin’s piece “Foodie Town,” which he created in Assistant Professor Ryan Hartley Smith’s Illustration II course, is now on display at the Society of Illustrators along with the other winning entries. The exhibition is up now through June 3rd. More information here.
