Why am I about to board this bus for the 3rd time tonight?
ART OUT LOUD
Art Out Loud was an event run at the Society of Illustrators in New York.
Essentially a bunch of master illustrators set up in the upstairs of the Society, work on a final for a few hours using their typical process, and the rest of us get to wander around, watch, and badger the artists with questions.
The illustrators demoing this year were:
I had never been to New York before
The Spectrum show was running the same weekend at the Society of Illustrators
They brought us upstairs and the demos began! I took some photos once things got further along
Watching Sam Weber work:
He talked to me a bit about what his student work was like (completely different than his current stuff) and discovered we were both taught by Rick Sealock (awesome teacher!!)
The way he manipulates watercolors and acrylics into one cohesive image is really amazing to watch. I learned a lot.
While there I also got to meet Eric Fortune.
Time to head home on the return trip! All twelve hours of it...
