Chatting With Sherri welcomes artist Echo Chernik!
Echo has more than twenty years of experience as a professional commercial artist in the advertising field, and five years as an instructor of graphics and digital illustration at Pratt Institute, Westchester Community College, Marymount Manhattan and Skidmore CCI. She specializes in art nouveau-influenced poster design, advertisements, package design and book covers. She has been an Illustrators of the Future judge since 2016.
She is a traditionally trained artist—a graduate of Pratt Institute, summa cum laude (President’s Award for Academic Excellence). A traditional background in art focuses on skills such as drawing and painting as well as perspective and color theory. This allows the artist to translate their concept into whatever media best suits the job—resulting in a very versatile artist, who is not limited by any one medium.
