The SNC/FA Almanac, with images spanning the last year's art activities and events, is currently available for purchase. You can order it online here (where you can also see a free preview). Much thanks to Logan Lape for putting it together.

Elisa's Animated Arrivederci

I know I won't be alone in missing terribly the Italian students from L'Aquila who have graced our campus over the last year. Speaking personally, they were all wonderful to have in my classes, full of enthusiasm, good cheer, and curiosity. One student, Elisa Mancini, made a short cartoon for her animation class -- it tells the story of her journey to Sierra Nevada College, after the April 2009 earthquake in L'Aquila destroyed the university there. I thought it would find an appreciative audience here on the blog (doubleclick to watch it on youtube at a larger size, or click on the fullscreen button on the player controls):

May the fourth be with you.

Today is the unofficial holiday celebrating

I am proudly a Star Wars nerd
and here are some of my favorite Star Wars things.
