SEQA has been bursting with creative energy this quarter! First of all, if you are not following Professor Tom Lyle’s Blog, you should be, because he is chronicling the quarter of his time at SCAD-Lacoste. Also, if you are in the area, Norris Hall has been putting up tons of artwork on every wall and every floor, at the demands of former full-time SEQA professor and current Dean of Communications John Lowe. Let him know you appreciate his desire to see original comics from your favorite SEQAHomies!
We at SEQALab.com have also been listed in the 100 Great Blogs for Art Students & Enthusiasts! We are listed #1 in the category of “Art Students” and #32 overall! Thanks for continuing to read our blog and listening to the greatest podcast dedicated to SEQA ever!
