Once more… Illustration Master Class 2013

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

I will be returning once more to the Illustration Master Class this weekend. To say I am filled with a little trepidation is putting it mildly. If you missed it, last year I came down with the death virus upon arriving at IMC and was in bed the entire week and missed pretty much everything. IMC 2011, my first year, was a truly amazing experience filled with wonderfully exciting memories… while IMC 2012, my second year, was the complete polar opposite. As I find myself facing IMC 2013 and I am hoping more then anything that it will be nothing like 2012.

I always said if I returned to IMC for a third time I would paint traditionally. Though this barely counts as a third visit, I am sticking to my word and I will be painting in acrylic this year. This decision of course is adding to my reservation that much more, but if I am going to challenge myself and get the most out of the class I need to do this.

I will again be documenting my adventures at IMC and will share them with you once I return. I will most likely still hop on the blog durning the week on my usual posting days to share a image or two, but the full story of IMC 2013 will go up stating the week of the 17th.

I will leave you with a little sneak peek at what I am planning on working on this year. I am looking forward to sharing the process of working this piece…

…and hopefully I will no be sick the entire time.

That is all for another exciting week on the blog, I will see you back here next week for some glimpses of the Illustration Master Class! Until then...

  1. Can't wait to see the finished product! I greatly respect your dedication to the craft.

    1. Thanks! I can't wait either... I hope it all goes smoothly. I appreciate it, I feel I could be more diligent to my craft... but I have to sleep sometime.

  2. I don't expect I will ever get to Illustration Master Class but I am looking forward to reading (and seeing the pics) all about your illness free time there. You will have such a wonderful, learning week.

  3. Get lots of vitamin C, less of vitamin PLAGUE!
