artist of the week :: jillian erhardt

not many things give me more pride than seeing my 'kids' go out into the big bad art world and start to make a difference... and make art that builds off of (and far surpasses) what they ever did in my classroom.
one such artist is jillian erhardt.
she recently set up a website, and its deserving of a look. she is using her talent for the greater good - as part of a social design design collective at MICA. they are working on helping to educate the public about good hygiene, std's, as well as a variety of other community-based projects. its pretty awesome...
so, check out her work below, and if you are so inclined, you can see more at

so... hopefully there are other alumns out there reading this - if you have a newly created site, or a new body of work to share with the world... shoot me an email, or better yet, bring it along to the reunion on wednesday. i would love to get you all up on my site!
