42nd Annual GNSI conference begins in Olympia, WA

In the techniques showcase various illustrators demonstrated their skills - here Marjorie Leggitt explains how to get textures right with pen and ink. Marjorie is one of the core teachers in our BI-program.

The GNSI Annual Conference in Olympia WA was opened with two exciting keynote presentations: David Craig talked about the intelligent crows and their ability to manage the art of facial recognition, and Fred Sharpe took us to the world of humpback whales. 
With a techniques showcase and several additional presentations (e.g., Bryn Barnard's exploration of the history and politics of some of the past epidemics), and the annual art exhibit opening reception this week-long conference got very effectively started.
