July 3, 2013 we lost Jacqui Morgan (a/k/a Jacquelynn Morganstern) – dear sister, significant cousin, beloved friend, esteemed colleague, valued associate, inspirational educator, iconic illustrator, acclaimed visual artist, renowned watercolor painter, noted author, and damn nice, elegant, beautiful lady.
She was a popular Illustration Department faculty member at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC since 2000 and was conducting her Watercolor Compos & Illustration course for the 2013 summer semester.
Jacqui Morgan's latest book — Almost Nude: Watercolors from Life — contains a selection of figures painted at the New York Society of Illustrators, the Spring Studio in Soho, as well as private sessions with friends and demonstrations for her watercolor classes. Some figures are nude, some are costumed but all were painted directly from life. To purchase a copy of this newest book, click to http://www.blurb.com/ bookstore/ detail/2307858.
