Starting My BFA at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design

Krister Eide Ratfox-Krister Eide

I made a big leap and am now pursuing a BFA in Illustration (Special Concentration in Children’s Book Illustration) at the Rocky Mountain College + Design. Fortunately, I had been doing a lot of drawing over the summer, so it was fairly easy to put together a portfolio.

Figure Drawing at Gage

Back StudyI just finished a figure foundations course at Gage Academy in Seattle with Aron Hart. This is probably my best of the class – it combined graphite with white charcoal.  My ability to render really improved over the course of the term. Over the summer I also took a self-paced course with Scott Eaton and that also helped me learn anatomical landmarks.
