These are challenging times and the new normal of coronavirus-motivated self-isolation, social distancing and self-quarantining can be disconcerting. Art, however, always rises to the occasion in difficult times, whether with humor, inspiration, encouragement, anger or sobering commentary. Each week for the next few weeks, as artists and designers all over the world learn and work from home, we will be presenting selections of work created by SVA community members. See below for today's roundup.
SVA alumni Zee Myers (BFA 2004 Computer Art), Loryn Brantz (BFA 2007 Animation) and Kyra Kupetsky (BFA 2015 Animation), who collectively oversee BuzzFeed's popular Good Advice Cupcake brand, are doing their part to send love during this difficult time, while also reminding people about the importance of social distancing.
BFA illustration faculty member and designer Edel Rodriguez's work is often pointed, satirical and darkly humorous. His latest post is a curated collection of vintage posters and their commentary on viruses and disease.
