Some more warm-ups between 1 minute and a half hour. If you look real close, I have a male figure in there!? I've been looking at these drawings.
Also, over this past weekend, my father graduated with his Associate degree in the applied biomedical field. When the Detroit auto industry collapsed he made up his mind to enroll in a local college. His last time spent in school was 40 years prior as a high school student. After 3 intense years of study he graduated with top honors in his class. The field requires regular computer use, and he had never turned on a computer before his classes. He also was given the highest grade his internship instructor has ever given. This internship requires 20 hours a week - he gives 40. Anything I've accomplished is a result of the inspiration I get from watching my dad give 110% to everything he does. You know those people that scream and yell at graduations? Yeah, that was my mom and I the whole ceremony. Congrats dad!!!
PS. It's about that time of the year. The summer Illustration Academy program begins May 31st and ends June 25. For the first time, it is being split into 2 locations: Kansas City, MO and Richmond, VA. I'm honored and excited to be helping out this year! I will be in Kansas City for the last half of the program, offering any knowledge I can. Again, it's a terrific program and one of the best investments you can make towards your development as an artist. Hope to see some folks there!
Also, TAD recently held an online course "The Art of the Feminine Form" this past weekend. The whole presentation has been recorded and is now available to purchase for a very reasonable price "on demand". It's a great course, with some killer conversations and artwork. Now that classes are over for many students, it's a great way to keep the juices flowing over the summer!
