July Workshop - Scooter!

I've been totally inspired by this piece from Terry & Rachel Dodson




This month's theme will be Scooter!

Come and draw or paint our model posing with a scooter. It's summer and it's great weather to be out on your scooter. I'm in the mood to watch Roman Holiday again! Bella, our model will be a great partner with my scooter.

May Workshop - Samurai!





This month's theme will be SAMURAI!

Come and draw or paint our model fully dressed in a suit of samurai armor from Chicago Costume. Also note the slight time change for this month. We will be starting at 6:30 PM.
 
I'm working with a great team of artists on a KickStarter project called Shogun Rising.
What is Shogun Rising?
 
Shogun Rising is an original story and full 64 page color illustrated graphic novel about love, samurai, and zombies. Near-future Tokyo is zombie apocalypse ground zero. Survivors are forced to flee to a remote samurai village. Hiroshi, a samurai prodigy, and Mizuki, the daughter of a ruthless Tokyo crime-boss, attempt to navigate the new world and their forbidden love. Tensions arise as cultures clash and the chances of survival diminish. And yes, samurais will totally fight zombies.

Now, the tie-in to the workshop is anyone who backs the project over $14 can come to the workshop for FREE. Just bring a print out of the email for me.

Here's the link again for you.

April Workshop - Nick Fury





This month's theme will be Nick Fury!

C2E2 will be coming around in April. We'll celebrate comics with the Avengers leader.

What I'm hoping you will focus on at the workshop is black. Black on black clothing specifically. Should be interesting.

We'll revisit the Deja Thoris theme when the model can work with a date with the workshop.

Bring your friends!
