Frank Stockton, Illustrator
Born in Southern California, Stockton was reared on a diet of Jackie Chan movies, superheroes, Star Wars, Ralph Bakshi films, underground comix, and Italian Renaissance painting. His work has been featured in American Illustration, Juxtapoz, and Heavy Metal magazines. The fun part of making the illustration, he says, was finding ways to imply evil intentions through subtle costume details. His favorite? The impossibly white gloves because they mask the blood on the hands of the Nazis.
Jane Whitehead, Writer
British-born and Oxford-educated, freelancer Whitehead is based in Boston and New York. Her features, essays, and profiles have appeared in many local newspapers and alumni publications. Of her profiles in this issue of four departing faculty, she says: “In trying to encapsulate these brilliant and varied careers, one thing stood out. Beyond their academic accomplishments and national prominence, these people are all valued most highly for their sterling human qualities: humility, integrity, wit, grit, and empathy.”
