This lunch series is a tremendous opportunity for students to come together in a small group setting and ask alumni questions about their journey into the world after leaving MCAD. The focus of the series is on learning from each other and being part of a bigger conversation.

This week's alum: Brent Schoonover ’02

Hailing from the epicenter of culture known as South Beloit, Illinois, Brent was on a one-way trip to normalcy until the fateful day he laid eyes upon his first comic book. He immediately grabbed hold of a pencil and never let go, dedicating himself to creating scores of characters and scenarios with a zeal that would make lesser men quake in dread. Moving to Minnesota to attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, he draws upon a fertile imagination marinated in comics, old cartoons, classic horror movies, pro wrestling, and face-melting metal to create distinctive illustrations with a retro feel that run the gamut from comic books to editorial to packaging assignments. So if you have a project that needs a fresh look, give him a call. He has plenty of ink to go around.
