In The Press: Ink Plots in DNAInfo

October 27, 2010

In the daily Manhattan newsletter DNAInfo, Tara Kyle explains the heritage of the graphic novel and the key role played by the late Will Eisner, a former SVA faculty member. While discussing the exhibition “Ink Plots: The Tradition of the Graphic Novel,” Kyle also points out the increasing popularity of producing graphic novels: “A decade ago, students in [MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department Chair Marshall Arisman’s] 20-person program were preparing for careers in editorial illustration, children’s books, and in a few cases, animation or the arts. These days, Arisman said, around 40 percent produce graphic novels.”
