Illustrated Standards Currently in Progress
An illustrated standard project requires much interaction between artist and committee. Drawings are submitted to the committee for review and changes may be requested. Ideally, the committee will take no longer than necessary for review, although large committees with differing opinions and schedules can tend to make review longer. It is important to establish a timeline to keep the project moving forward and fresh in everyone's mind. For this reason, I impose a deadline on myself to return drawings or revisions promptly. That also helps a great deal while working simultaneously on several projects, which I do to utilize the time that each committee needs to deliberate and review. While one committee reviews, I can work on another project and keep everyone current and progressing forward. Works in progress don't need to take longer than necessary and delays can be avoided with commitment to the illustrated standard project.
Illustrated Standard artwork can vary greatly, depending upon the club's needs and style preference. More and more publications are now intended for both presentation online and in print, so it helps to have some flexibility. Below you will find examples from current illustrated standard projects. In this case, the included illustrated standards are still a work in progress, with the entire project working toward completion. For that reason, a grayed out preview is included.
The illustrated standard publication gallery section is split into three pages. The galleries for Completed Projects and Works Pending Publication can be accessed by following the links to each gallery. Click on any image in the publication galleries and a large version will open.
New projects beginning in 2016 for the American Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Association and the Akita Club of America.
