Our Symposium guest (via Skype) this
Wednesday from Paris, France will be Nicolas Delort. We were lucky enough to have Nicolas come visit the Illustration Program at SU last October when he hitched a ride up from New York City with Sam Wolfe Connelly. Sam and Nicolas spent two days in Syracuse sharing their talents with our students.
Although he is young, Nicolas has already developed a signature style with his scratch board technique.
Delort's client list includes Arkane Studios, Black Library, Solaris Books, and the image on the right the cover for Tor Books, A Rumor of Angels, by Dale Bailey. Last Friday Nicolas picked up a Gold Medal in the Book category for A Rumor of Angels from The Society of Illustrators in New York City. It was his first medal but I'm sure it won't be his last. We are going to have fun!
