If you've ever wondered about the work and professional lives of Herron's professors, then look no further. Today we're introducing "Five Questions," a new series of Herron Stories where we ask various faculty members for sage advice and insights about their chosen creative disciplines.
Our first "Five Questions" spotlights Lowell Isaac, Herron alumnus (B.F.A. '09) and visiting lecturer of drawing and illustration, who is a prolific master of ink with a background in storyboard and concept art as well as animation.
HERRON: In what ways has
ISAAC: Being around young artists definitely energizes me. I find that being an artist can be a very isolating occupation, so any excuse we can find to clump together and share our experiences makes us stronger. Talking and sketching with students gets my heart beating, and I carry that home with me. I encourage students to form bonds during class, to take out their ear-buds and talk to each other because this community fuels us creatively and professionally. I've come to see what an important part of art education that is.
