Miguel Angel Reyes: 2016-17 Faculty Development Grant Report


Fashion Illustration Trip/Drawing Marathon to NYC, June 14-27, 2017

The Main purpose of this trip was to interview and photograph Fashion Illustration Artists in New York City. For the past 5 years, I have traveled to NYC to Meet and Draw alongside with some of the best fashion illustrators of NYC. In 2014-2016, I conducted interviews at restaurants, visited Studies, and a couple of FIT and Parsons' classrooms with Richard Haines, Bil Donovan, George Gozum, Steven Broadway, Richard Rosenfeld, Robert W. Richards, Glenn Martin, Lamont O'Neal, Carlos Aponte, Leonard Cadiente, Scooter LaForge and Robert Fontanelli. This year, I visited the Studio of Paul Caranicas, the Caretaker of the Antonio Lopez Estate. Paul is also a well know CityScape Realist painter in his own right. I also interviewed/photographed and filmed a few more Fashion Illustrators at Fashion and Figure Drawing events/workshops.
