Illustration Alum Shares Industry Expertise in Latest Issue of ImagineFX Magazine

Posted March 8, 2017 in FacultyAlumniIllustration

Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (KCAD) alumna Alyssa (Parsons) Menold (’13, BFA Illustration) recently shared some insight into her work as a professional illustrator with readers of the UK-based digital art magazine ImagineFX.

Each issue of the magazine contains a Workshop section where professional illustrators give readers a window into the processes, tools, and techniques they use in the field. For the March 2017 issue, Menold explains how she created the cover for a new rule book for the tabletop role-playing game Shadowrun, from concept sketches to revisions to the final product.
