Bill Leach drum extravaganza

Bill Leach (see the sidebar for more links) teaches cartooning at LMC as well as Deer Valley High School. But he's also a drummer (google results for "drummer jokes") who ran a "World's Fastest Drummer contest. Here's a bit o' Youtube video from the contest that we lifted from his myspace site. Feel the need for more Bill? He has an "All about Bill" video too! It was created for cable TV by the Contra Costa Arts and Culture Commission when Bill was honored with their Arts Recognition Award in 2008.

Inside Out: Self portraits based on contemporary graffiti and stencil art

LMC art instructor Judi Pettite took advantage of blank plywood construction walls at the college to exhibit her painting students work. Each piece is a stencil based self portrait on 24 x 24 inch plywood, screwed on to the temporary walls. The work, though inspired by Banksy Shepard and Swoon, reflects each students personal story.



Books by photography students
