Amidst the Saturday night, New York City chaos, Austin Scott Ansbro, one of Pratt’s finest recent graduates, hosted his most precious collection yet, Ordinary People, at Trumbull Studio. The crowded space, which saw over three hundred attendes by my count, proved the perfect venue for the brightly colored, hard line illustrations of this inventive mind. With the head-count high, I did manage to get a few words with the artist which went something like this:
Dingus: Austin, what is art to you?
Ansbro: Bright colors and black lines.
