HUGE EXCITING NEWS for one of our Illustration & Sequential Art Students! Please join us in congratulating Andrew Jackson, newly appointed Artist In Residence at Happy Harbor Comics!
We couldn’t be happier for Andrew, who reached out to Guru from his home in Uganda (after spending time in Edmonton and meeting with Guru Alumni Kyle Charles during his residency at Happy Harbor!) With unyielding optimism, Andrew pursued his application to Guru and completed the lengthy process of applying for his Canadian Visa (not to mention adapting to the dramatically different temperatures here in Edmonton! Brr!!)
Showing the same determination, Andrew applied for the Happy Harbor Comics Artist-in-Residence program, and although this round of applications was very extremely competitive, the residency judges were drawn to Andrew’s dedication, experience and attitude and ultimately awarded him the role! Today, we celebrate this terrific accomplishment!b Andrew will continue his studies here at Guru while simultaneously working on his residency with our friends over at HHC!
Congratulations Andrew, from all of us here at Guru!!
