Red Nose Studio was invited to speak at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film in Nashville, TN on Thursday, March 7th, 2013 as part of their Visiting Artists Series. The lecture begins at 5:30 and will be immediately followed by a reception from 6:00 to 8:30 for Illustration the Hard Way: Process, Sets & Puppets, featuring Chris' preparatory sketches, fabric samples, photographs and puppets. It will be on display in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery on campus through Thursday, April 4th. The event is free and open to the public.
Dan Brawner, Chair of the Department of Graphic Design at Watkins, says: "Chris Sickels aka Red Nose Studio is one of the most inventive illustrators on the planet. An avid scribbler, builder and maker, Chris is a modern day Geppetto, cobbling together new worlds out of springs and cogs and other found bits and pieces. Via books, advertising and animation he entertains a wide audience with his odd, puppet-filled worlds – garbage barges, look books and holistic visualization are but a few curious topics that have inspired investigation and storytelling. The visual treats from Red Nose Studio are a feast for the face."
