At a general membership meeting May 19, Jeff Boyer was chosen as our local’s third vice president.
Jeff joined the Times Union in June 2000 as an editorial artist. He graduated with A.A.S. in commercial art from Sullivan County Community College. After working in an aerospace company’s art department for 10 years, he entered the newspaper business in 1990.
His design and illustration work has received numerous awards from The Associated Press, Gannett and Hearst. The Syracuse Press club and Gannett have also honored him for his cartoons.
Jeff has illustrated for several magazines and has exhibited paintings in several galleries within New York state and Maryland, including a one-man show of sports themed art.
“Jeff Boyer’s excellent work has brightened many a page, especially front pages on Sundays,” Guild local president Tim O’Brien said. “We are so proud he is willing to join the board, and we know he’ll be a great voice for his colleagues.”
