Delaware College of Art and Design is delighted that its retail space at 706 N. Market St. is the new home for downtown staple Spaceboy Clothing. The relocation of Spaceboy from its previous 711 N. Market St. address commenced in January and was completed in time for the store’s 10th anniversary celebration, which included a grand reopening concert on March 1. The “one-stop shop for locally made graphic tees, custom clothing, vintage goods and more” debuted at a site on Kirkwood Highway in 2009 before moving first to 617 N. Market St. and then to 711 as the business, owned by Noah Merenda and David Sanchez, grew and evolved.
Second-year Delaware College of Art and Design animation students recently collaborated with Stitch House Brewery, a restaurant located down Market Street from DCAD, on a motion media project that blended 2D animation with live-action footage to complete a commercial. Under the direction of animation area coordinator Tad Sare, student artists Jaymen Tucker and Angel Hall worked with classmates both on-site and in the DCAD studios to create the 49-second advertisement. Fellow students Nicole Avallone, Lexi Peabody and Matthew Terry can even be seen toasting in the piece. This isn’t the first time that Sare’s classes have partnered with a business to create real-world work. In 2018, for example, his second-years animated old-time advertising jingles in cooperation with Ethan Uslan of The Carolina Shout Podcast.
A ceremony to celebrate the service and retirement of illustration area coordinator and printmaking instructor Alexi Natchev was held at Delaware College of Art and Design on the afternoon of January 18. Natchev was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts, also in Sofia. Since moving to the United States in 1990, he has completed editorial illustrations for publishers such as Doubleday, Penguin Putnam, Random House and Simon and Shuster. Books carrying his work that have been issued since he came to DCAD in 2006 include “The Elijah Door,” “Rock-a-Bye Farm,” “Urso Brunov and the White Emperor,” “Sinbad the Sailor” and “Waiting for Christmas.”
Danielle Miller earned an associate’s degree in graphic design from DCAD in 2017. Before graduating, the Maryland native landed a spring semester/summer internship with DLS Discovery, located a short walk from the College, through a speed-interviewing session conducted on campus with a range of local employers. Less than a year after starting at DLS, Danielle parlayed her temporary opportunity into a permanent, full-time position as the design and print manager for the company’s growing marketing operations. Since then, Danielle has coordinated several design and/or print projects for DCAD as a client. In addition, she recently joined the College’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee as an alumni representative.
