Professional Artist Series kicks off with Accomplished Illustrator

Lindsay Hibbard, September 15, 4:30pm at Gallery Studio

The Adrian Center for the Arts will begin its 2019-20 professional artist series with a talk by new member artist Lindsay Hibbard. Hibbard will talk about his experiences as an illustrator in many different industries. The talk will take place at 4:30 p.m., Sunday, September 15 in the Gallery Studio.

Hibbard has worked as an architectural renderer, medical illustrator and also as a book illustrator. He has published several books including a recent release, “Chad’s Surprise Balloon Ride” working with author Kelly Wallis DeWitt. The book is based on real experiences about the adventures of a Down syndrome boy. DeWitt is from Tecumseh and will join the event at the end of the program for a book signing. 

Hibbard has lectured on Architectural Illustration at the Ohio State University and has worked on government illustration projects for the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Pentagon Museum. His health care illustration includes work for the Cleveland Clinic and numerous children’s hospitals. Hibbard has also illustrated in the automotive industry for Porsche, Jaguar, Acura and Subaru. Most recently he was employed as a designer and project manager for Wilhelm Landscapes, Williamsburg, Michigan where he designed and presented for residential landscape projects.

Hibbard’s experiences include using a variety of media which he will discuss: pencil, ink, pastel, acrylic, watercolor and digitally generated images.

He will be a part of the ACA teaching team this year offering a six-week class this fall, "Finding Your Media" where students will experience wide ranging 2D media. In January he will teach an illustration class covering perspective, architecture, landscape, cartooning, and digital illustration. In the spring he will teach a class on children's book illustration and with that he will share his wealth of experience with the process of publishing a book.

The talk is free and open to the public.
