Robert Weaver Award

During the graduation ceremony I was honored with the Robert Weaver Award for Excellence in the Visual Essay....something I'm very excited about because 1) Robert Weaver is easily my favorite illustrator and one of my favorite artists overall, and 2) I love visual essays. I think it might be difficult to start going out and creating visual essays with nobody telling me to...but I'm going to try my hardest to initiate visual essay projects on my own. Any ideas?

I believe I did about 6 visual essays throughout the Communication Design program, and here is one from John's Narrative Sketchbook class, drawn on location on The Loop.


  1. congrats! you deserved it, that's for sure! i can see you going a long way with visual essays, mike.

  2. CONGRATS!!!! this will be the only nice thing coming out of my mouth in regards to you for a long time.
