Safety on the “Bridge to Nowhere” Grant Parsons wrote an articulate column in opposition to the proposed Traverse City pier at the mouth of the Boardman River.

Vote Carefully A recent poll showed 84% of Michiganders support increasing Michigan’s renewable energy standard to at least 20% from the current 10%. Yet Representative Ray Franz has sponsored legislation to eliminate the standard. This out of touch position is reminiscent of Franz’s opposition to the Pure Michigan campaign and support for increased taxes on retirees....

Credit Where Credit Is Due I think you should do another article about the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund giving proper credit to all involved, not just Tom Washington. Many others were just as involved...

I’ve Changed My Mind The Supreme Court has determined that states cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. This has happened with breathtaking suddenness.

From Pencil to Pixel: Jordan River Art Center Exhibit Shows a Book‘s Progress

- February 17th, 2005
How does an illustrator/author put a book together? The answer is revealed in “From Pencil to Pixel,” a new exhibit at the Jordan River Art Center in East Jordan.
The exhibit presents original illustrations and their accompanying books from several Michigan authors and illustrators. Animation techniques, the development of illustrations for a story, and the technique of multiple drawings and story boards are also detailed.
Result? You can compare the artist’s original illustration with its marked page in the published book and learn just how it all came together.
The exhibit features works from the Mazza Museum Collection as well as artists Betty Beeby of Eastport; Jan and Gary Bower, Traverse City; Mary Fuscaldo, Traverse City; Mary Hramiec Hoffman, Harbor Springs; Heidi Marshall, Harbor Springs; Wendy and Brian Froud, England; Ken Scott, Suttons Bay; and Kathy-jo and Ed Wargin, Petoskey.
“From Pencil to Pixel” is literally an education. Four videos explore different techniques of animation. The story board technique and drawing for animations are exhibited. Animators participating are Diana Morse of Grand Rapids; Jim Middleton, Battle Creek; Rob Hughes, Traverse City; and Dave Baker, Galesburg.
The exhibit continues through February 26, and is open daily from 1-4 p.m. For info, call 231-582-6399.
