ERIC ABELE

Professor - Designer - Painter

I'm a trained, professional costume designer for theatre who believes that art education within the context of theatre design needs an overhaul.  My mission, through my own work and that of my students, is to de-stigmatize image-making and increase students' confidence in their visual communication skills.

My research interests include digital costume rendering techniques, incorporating more realistic applications of pattern, bodies, and texture within a sketch. Over the course of the next few semesters, I will be working to develop tutorials and techniques on how costume designers can use their iPads to bring their art into the digital age.
