When Pigs Fly, the story of a little pig who is able to do big things with the help of his friends, is fictional, but the moral is real. Josh Brunet (Class of 2011) started creating this children's book ten years ago, and with the help of his friends the book has gone from a dream to a reality. Buy the book now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and don't forget to leave some positive feedback to help spread the word!
Congratulations, Josh, on your first published children's book!

David Brinley (Class of 2010) was commissioned a few weeks ago to conceive and paint nine editorial portraits (eight of which ran) for The Washington Post's Sunday Outlook section. The portraits, of some of history's most influential people that don't live up to their namesakes, were published over a full two-page color spread in the September 4th edition of the paper. See all eight portraits and their accompanying articles here, and see them in context of the printed page here and here.
Take a few minutes out of your day to browse through Chad Grohman's (Class of 2010) recently completed project "The World We Live In", one hundred paintings completed between the months of April and August of this year. The paintings are done in gouache and watercolor on Arches hot press watercolor blocks and range from 5x7 inches to 14x11 inches. The work illustrates the environment in and around Buffalo, New York—from the east along the coast of Lake Ontario, to Cooperstown in the west. All of the original paintings can be seen as a collection on the site "The World We Live In" and will be available in a compiled book at chadgrohman.com this fall.
