mfa student profile: Val Paul Taylor

Val Paul Taylor in Hartford CT, July 2008
Val bring a long history of design, consultation to the discussions and critique. His illustration career has led him over the mountain peaks in Alaska, as well as into the history books of the library down the street. Val has the unique ability to see the industry from both sides of the table, as provider and buyer. He is able to cut to chase in a business-like manner that has little to do with the intent of the piece, but rather the resulting finish. He's gonna shake some of these "kids" up with his commentary, but they will end up with something to think about.

I'm a fan of VPT since his days illustrating for the old Alaska Sportsman/Alaska magazine (pre Sunset). His work has been intriguing and fine all along. Great to see him on here; wish there was more to his website - especially pieces for purchase.
