Happy Birthday Schaller!

Ok, so it's a week late, but I had to finish it. I can say that this is the proudest piece of art I've done in a while. It mixes caricature, illustration, and graphic design. I discovered graphic design because of Schaller, when I first took Visual Communications my Junior year in High School(8 years ago!!) ....I didn't know what typography, art deco, and Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop was until I took his course. 
   The reason I took it was because I saw one of his students sketching logos, so I asked for what class, and he said visual communications. The next year I took it, and took it again in ROP the following year. We designed and printed magazine spreads, stationary, packaging, books, and posters, all in his fully loaded graphic design classroom/workshop.
     His Cabrillo High School Graphics program is renowned nationally and his students have won truck loads of prize and scholarship money from the California State Fair and California College of the Arts. I had the privilege of being his student again last Fall during a community college design course and was great hanging out with him and his talented students, who are a force of nature! Check out the Official Site for his Program  
and Student Work

He's also been really getting into the Paper Toy and Vinyl Toy Scene, here's some of his creations!
