Secrets



A former drawing teacher of mine from SVA, Mike Mattesi, moved to LA and started his own school in Pasadena. He gave me a call not long ago . . . Thus, in a couple of weeks I will be conducting a workshop, during which sketchbooks will be revealed, photoshop will be discussed, and people will be drawn! I will present the process of a digital illustration from start to finish in the first hour and draw from the model for the last 2 hours. Many closely gaurded secrets will be revealed.

When: Oct. 15, 2006
11am - 2 pm

Where: Entertainment Art Academy
145 North Altadena Drive
Pasadena, CA 91107

Cost: $50

For more information and to enroll, click on this link: http://www.enterartacad.com/events.htm

*** Update 9.27.06 *** Enrollment for the class has completely filled up. Thanks so much for your interest and support! See you in Pasadena.

i want to go to this! I think it would be worth the cost of a plane flight for a sunday afternoon hearing you speak about your work. Is there any info on how many spots there are for the workshop?

It looks as though the idea of a dvd has already been established! Good - it validates my need for one.

Greetings from Argentina

If you recorded a screened video with audio of your PS class i KNOW it will sell out nicely.

Also it would give us (those who live too far from Pasadena) a chance to learn from you.

Online workshops are an alternative that i hope you consider.

Hi James!

OMG, Germany is more than far away....... :-(
Yes, a DVD for us, who couldn´t come to your place, is a very good idea!
You should think about it.....

Great wishes,
