Here at the Low Residency MFA in Illustration program, we are working hard to make our blog 'Squint' more useful to our students and general audience with more frequent updates, and information that is easy to navigate. The latest improvement to the site is the new Testimonials page where you can find all of our (very successful) alumni's experiences and praise collected in one easy-to-read place.

Alumni Greg Newbold (class of 2009) has had a series of illustrations created during his time with the Hartford MFA program accepted into this year's 3x3 Illustration Picture Book Annual. Though the personal project does not yet have a publisher, this admission is some well-deserved and prestigeous recognition for the work. The graphic design for this picture book was done by fellow Hartford MFA graduate Val Paul Taylor (class of 2010).
Find out more about "Scuffy- A Scarecrow's Tale" on Greg's blog.
In 2012, at the suggestion of Student Scott Murphy (Class of 2014), a new tradition began. During each contact period of their MFA journey, Hartford students now find time to gather for a private karaoke session where they bond in song.
MFA alumni John S. Dykes has been hard at work on several recent illustration assignments, featured at left and below. The first (left) is from the upcoming Frogfolio Calendar, which will be available in September. Frog-lovers check back often; online ordering info to come.
