Christina Philipp, 17, is one heck of an artist — winning the highly sought-after prize.

According to DMAC:

“I’m so overwhelmed with joy that I won,” said Christina. “I’ve loved art since I was a baby and have always wanted to be an animator.”

 

The competition was made up 45 high school senior students in a one-day, two-round art competition. This was the seventh annual competition.

 

      • A panel of DMAC faculty were the judges.

      • One full Undergraduate Scholarship will be awarded towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design or Computer Animation: worth $70,000.

DMAC Home For Renowned Comic Book Illustrator, Turned Teacher
2/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
          

Boca Raton, FL (February 25, 2013)— As Digital Media Arts College (DMAC) has grown, so has the level of talented instructors at the Boca Raton-based college.

Since DMAC offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Graphic Design, Advertising Design, Web Design, Visual Effects Animation, Computer Animation, and Game Art, cutting edge, experienced educators are essential, and those with a high profile portfolio make a student’s experience all that more marketable.

One such teacher, Mark Sparacio, is a renowned comic book illustrator, highly regarded among the genre’s passionate aficionados.

“Graphic novels have made a huge comeback in recent years,” said Sunny Sharma, President of Digital Media Arts College. “Learning from an accomplished illustrator with practical industry experience like Mark Sparacio is such a treat for ourstudents. We’re thrilled to have someone with his background on campus.”

Not only do DMAC graduates go on to work on graphic novels, but they also work on major motion pictures such as ‘The Avengers’ and this coming summers soon-to-be blockbusters, Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Star Trek into Darkness,’ and ‘G.I. Joe Retaliation’.

“Teaching helps me stay fresh,” said Sparacio. “Being around the students helps keep me up on issues that are relevant and important to that generation. I’m thrilled to share what I’ve learned over my career, and I’m equally as excited to continue learning from them.”

Sparacio moved to Boca Raton from New York after 9/11,and has been teaching at DMAC for the past four years. After a career specializing in toy illustration for companies like Mattel and Hasbro, Sparacio decided to chase his first true love – comic book illustration.   
 

Sparacio had attended the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan as a young man, and studied under Will Eisner, the original creator of the comic book. They remained in touch over the years, and Sparacio often sought his advice.
 

In a rather fortuitous twist of fate, Sparacio learned his personal accountant also worked for Billy Tucci, the creator of Shi,a well-known graphic novel.  Sparacio wound up doing design work for Tucci, then when Marvel executives saw his work, they asked him to design covers for them. 

The first cover Sparacio created was Green Lantern #175.  He has also designed two Overstreet comic book price guides—the standard industry ‘bible’ that publishes the value of every comic book ever published.

Sparacio also has created an original comic book series, Omega Paradox, along with co-creator/writer, Ian Ng and digital painter Abe Melendez. The team is currently working on the second story arc to be released as a Graphic Novel in the Summer of 2013.

DigitalMedia Arts College (dmac.edu) is a private, fully accredited college launched in 2002.  The school’s graduates have gone on to work on major motion pictures, design advertising campaigns, develop video games and more.

The school features a modern 33,000 square foot “studio-like” facility equipped with industry-standard tools for digital graphic design and animation production.  Classes are taught in a studio-like atmosphere.  Students work with a motion capture chroma key wall with professional video equipment and in a fully featured art studio.

Skills students can learn include computer animation skills such as game art, modeling, technical direction, visual effects, motion capture, character development and graphic design skills such as web design, motion graphics, product packaging, branding, illustration and art direction.

The college is located at 5400 Broken Sound Boulevard N.W., Boca Raton, FL. 33487.  Visit www.dmac.edu or call 561-391-1148 for more information.
