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, a Herron alumnus (B.F.A. '09) and lecturer in 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.
