Student Artists Brought Saint Luke's Report to Life

CIA student artists illustrated and animated an interactive, online annual report for Saint Luke's Foundation.

Student Artists Brought Saint Luke's Report to Life

A team of CIA students brought to life stories of “resiliency, reinvention, and results” when they illustrated the 2009 annual report for Cleveland’s Saint Luke’s Foundation. The students worked under the direction of Visiting Instructor Larry O’Neal, who served as project manager.

“We were so pleased to partner with The Cleveland Institute of Art students and Larry O’Neal, their faculty advisor,” said Kimberly St. John-Stevenson, communications officer for Saint Luke’s. The foundation provided CIA with financial support, including scholarships, in support of this project.

“The Saint Luke’s Foundation project offered our students a great opportunity to work with an interesting, diversified client on a project I think they found very meaningful,” said O'Neal, who teaches in the Illustration Department. “It was a good experience.”

Saint Luke’s Foundation chose to produce its annual report as an interactive, online document, which lends itself to a technique of making sketches appear to fade into photographs. View the report here.

O’Neal explained that photography major Lauren Juratovac ’10 took photographs during the annual report writer’s interviews with representatives of agencies assisted by Saint Luke’s and clients of those agencies. In O’Neal’s class, seven student illustrators worked directly from Juratovac’s photographs. David Sladek ’10 then used an animation technique to create the fading effect, combining the illustrations, a watercolor technique, and Lauren’s photos. Yurich Creative did the web implementation.

In addition to Juratovac and Sladek, the illustration majors who worked on the project were Carolyn Shank ’09, Yusef Abonamah ’10, David Kegg ’10, and Alicia Vasquez ’11.
