Bob Selby, “The Blue Stool and Why It Matters”
Thursday 23 April, 1:45-2:00 pm, Hauke Courtyard (Ireland Lobby if it’s raining)
Bob Selby, co-creator of the Blue Stool, will be giving the final Blue Stool talk of the year.
Bob, who will be leaving Champlain at the end of the semester, has taught here for 12 years. Recently his time in CCM has been divided primarily between Graphic Design and Game Art and Animation. His most frequent recent courses include GDD 100 Form and Color (a course he helped re-design for the BFA), EGD 225 Drawing for Game Development, ART 135 Anatomy and Perspective (a course he created), and EGD 245 Concept Painting.
During his time at Champlain, Bob, a skilled illustrator in his own right and an exacting critic, has helped mold the careers of hundreds of Graphic Designers and Game Art Animators with his extremely high standards, meticulous attention to detail, and his philosophical insights into the nature of art.
Bob is an excellent teacher, a congenial colleague, and a good friend who will be sorely missed. Bob is leaving us to follow his wife Terri, a long-time employee of St Michael’s College, who has recently taken the position of Director of Major Gifts at Sarah Lawrence University in Canton, New York. In Canton, Bob plans to continue working on his own personal artistic projects while teaching part-time.
Please join us to hear Bob’s Blue Stool talk and to say good-bye.
