So the other weekend I had the chance to go to the Massive Black Workshop held at Manhattan Beach Studios. It has taken me over a week to decompress and I’m sure that I will continue to pull knowledge and … Continue reading →
Just signed up to go to the MB Workshop coming up, December 5-8. Looking forward to multiple days of awesome demonstrations, mind exploding inspiration and more learning and skill development in a couple of days than I might get in a year. I’ve wanted to go to one of these workshops for the last few years, but they have never been close enough to home to allow me to go.
I’m up, bright and early so I can make my way up to Hollywood to attend a 2 day workshop hosted by Gnomon School of VFX (Gnomon Live!). It’s going to have 10 instructors and be full of all sorts of awesome learning and inspiration. Looking forward to hearing so many talented folks talk about their work and process while being surrounded by like minded artist and maybe a few new friends.
I’m sure there will be more updates and pictures to follow over the next few days.
So its been about 7 years since I’ve been in a studio for some serious figure drawing. That drought ended today with a 6 hour session at Golden West Community College. Yes, 6 hours of drawing… broken up into two 3 hour sessions. Wow… I’ve forgotten how much fun drawing all day can be. I’ve also forgotten how exhausting it can be. Standing at my easel for 3 hours at a time, looking, observing and trying to make the marks on my paper represent what I see, really is physically and mentally draining. There is going to be another session next month, I think I’m going to sign up and give it a shot again. In the mean time, I need to make sure that I’m drawing a lot more. All of the time I spend working on a computer really takes away from the fun and joy of creating art with physical media. Spending the day with people who are creating with you was also very refreshing. Just a great day over all.
