Keyhole Sessions Drawing

I've been liking the 'drawing overlap' I get in between the pages of my sketchbook. I decided to try it out in a more refined drawing.

This is a mix from the lifedrawing at The Keyhole Sessions

The return, a show, and news

I've returned from Amherst with another Illustration Master Class complete.

I spent mid-June here:

The entire workshop revolves around attempting a book-cover assignment under the guidance of illustrators and art directors. The student chooses which topic they want to do an illustration for, they draw up some refined concepts, and then the faculty helps to make it better and take the student through the painting stage to the end.

A lot of other things are covered like reference, obtaining models, more effective ways to work out compositions in a rough, etc.

There were several different assignments to choose from. I selected Beauty and the Beast.

My initial sketch before the workshop started:

My revised drawing:

some painting later....

Traditional final so far:


... Now that I'm back in Toronto it will be in this show, this Saturday at the Gladstone in Toronto (along with the brown paper drawing)

-- so come on out :)
