We were forunate during the course of the Academy's Teen Program to have as a student Mercedes Milligan. Mercedes is an exceptional young lady who made a very positive impression while at the Academy.
After she outgrew the Teen Program Mercedes spent some time with the adults. Today she is on staff with Animation Magazine. On the occasions when a spot illustration or an editorial cartoon is called for, we can always expect to see something from her in the pages. Here's her latest editorial illustration published in the July 2006 issue of Animation Magazine. The subject concerns government legislation dealing with children's programming.
