I am so happy to announce a brand new illustration event that my wife and I have created.
Fantasy Art Workshop is hosting its first annual Illustration Intensive June 18 – 22, 2018, at the picturesque Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
The Illustration Intensive will feature three renown fantasy/commercial/gaming illustrators as faculty including Jeff Miracola (Magic: the Gathering, World of Warcraft, Star Wars TCG), Aaron Miller (Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars TCG), and Steve Prescott (Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, SoulSpark).
Rounding out the team are two heavy hitting guests of honor including award-winning children’s book illustrator Scott Gustafson (Dreamworks, The Greenwich Workshop, Saturday Evening Post), and Dire Wolf Digital Art Director Jon Schindehette.
Assisting the event is emerging fantasy artist Melissa Sue Stanley.
You do not need to create fantasy art to attend. You can be working in any genre of illustration. Beginners and professionals, working in digital or traditional media, are welcome.
The Illustration Intensive is a five-day workshop for aspiring and professional illustrators who want to take their art to a whole new level in an encouraging and creative environment, all while getting intense instruction from an award-winning faculty with decades of experience in fantasy gaming, video games, editorial, conceptual art, children’s books, and more. The Intensive will feature presentations, workshops, demos, portfolio reviews, and communing with fellow creatives, leading to a finished work by week’s end. As a bonus, attendees stay at the lovely Alverno College, which features spacious art facilities, catered meals, comfortable dorms, and easy proximity to amenities.
Registration is now open over at the website. It includes the workshop, housing, and food. Registration can also exclude housing for those who have other arrangements. Half payment is required to secure your spot.
