Upcoming Workshops

In the next few months I am going to be abandoning my studio to do some workshops abroad.  In these workshops we will be learning about analog + digital painting, drawing from life, working with reference, secret techniques of the illustration trade, tank warfare, and discussing feasible plans to colonize Mars.  It's serious business and it promises to be a lot of fun.  

Both of these workshops listed below are almost full. As in, I think there is literally only one seat available left in each.  So if you are considering going...

The first is the TLC Workshop in Washington, that will be going March 30 to April 1.  

Check it out on the TLC site here
And for more details on the course itself and what we will be up to, check out my previous entry here.
For those of you who have already signed up, I hope you are prepared to rock! 


Then on April 20 - 22 I will be teaching in Stockholm, Sweden at the Northern Light Workshop with 2 of my favorite painters, Petar Meseldzija and Jesper Ejsing. This. Will. Be. Awesome. 

Petar and Jesper are both amazing painters with a phenomenal grasp and command of illustration.  If you are unfamiliar with Petar, check out a previous article I wrote on him here.  
And then check out his blog here.

If you are unfamiliar with Jesper, check out his work here.  You can also look back through his articles on Muddycolors.blogspot.com which offer some really incredible step-by-step guides to how he works and approaches his paintings. 

Petar will be focusing on working in oil, Jesper on working in acrylic, and I will be working in watercolor and digital.  We will be doing demonstrations, discussing our approaches to painting and then working with each individual student on their own work so that they can take their work further. Seriously, if I wasn't teaching, I would have signed up myself.  

For more information on The Northern Light Workshop, check out the website here.

Hope to see you soon.

A Very Small Wizard

A Very Small Wizard

Whom I offended when I met him on a path in the old forest.

I kicked a stone at him and said, "stay out of my way! I'm a very important person with no time for little people who run about in their pajamas."

He ducked the flying stone and then mumbled a wild curse, and disappeared among the leaves.

When I got home I had a terrible case of poison ivy.
