Illustrator Katy Dockrill's first-time collaboration with art director Carey Bass at Middlebury Magazine has resulted in a delightfully whimsical and lighthearted piece. Accompanying the article "Parting Words", Katy's conceptual map describes the lazy days between finals and commencement for Middlebury's summer issue.
Katy's breezy line work and summer palette perfectly depicts that time in a young person's life. Each interaction highlights one small, unique aspect of the Middlebury College experience. The moments that you didn't realize would be missed until they are suddenly coming to a close (i.e. spontaneous spirited conversations, the residence experience). Katy captures that feeling of nostalgia for something that is still in our midst knowing that it is just with us for a little while longer.
