EDAC head of Illustration, Lee Nielsen, has been busy. Last year, he was asked to illustrate 4 comic books for the Smithsonian Institute. In the summer, he began working on the first of these books called “The Wrong Wrights.” The efforts of his work last summer have been published! Lee involved two Digital Illustration and Sequential Arts graduates as part of his project. Keil Hunka & Dalaney La Grange worked with Lee to ensure he was able to deliver a completed comic book to the Smithsonian Institute.
The CBC recently interviewed Lee on the book and his experiences. You can check it out here: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/edmonton-artist-crafts-comic-books-for-smithsonian-institution-1.3400098
