Copic Color & Ink Workshop Series

New Classes for 2013!
A few weeks ago we had our annual Copic Instructor Meeting, and spent a week working on our classes for next year. Along with fine-tuning our current Standard and Intermediate classes, we tested our brand-new class series (and I guarantee, you will LOVE the new classes!)

Copic Color & Ink Workshop Series
The first class is being offered just before Winter CHA in Anaheim. You can register at the Copic Website.

Note: The prerequisite for the Workshop Series is Standard Certification only.

Each workshop event is two days. You pay one fee and get to take all the class topics. Classes will be taught by two of our regional instructors. Students will take 4 different classes over the two days, and rotate between teachers. Topics include:

  • Coloring Ethnic Skin Tones and Various Hair Styles
  • Oodles of Doodles and Backgrounds
  • Airbrushing Made Easy
  • So Many Surfaces
An optional Evening Round-Table Discussion/Critique Session is also being offered for a small additional fee.

We would love to see you at one of these classes! This year we will only be offering the new Color & Ink Workshop in 10 locations across the US and Canada. Each year, the curriculum may change, so if you like these topics, then REGISTER right away! Classes are limited to a total of 50 students per location.

Soon you will also start seeing our Standard and Intermediate classes listed for 2013, so check our website for those details as well.

Had a Great time!

I had a fabulous time drawing and coloring this week at the U of O Tools of the Trade show! Every year I meet so many inspiring artists and companies. This event is truly one of my highlights each year.

Here is one of the images I drew and colored this week. I can't remember all the color combos used, but the dress is BG52, B05, and B24, with V28 in the deepest shadows. The gold is Y02, Y21, and YR23. The reds are R89 and R37. The skin was E000, E11, R01, and some subtle pale purples, blues, and pinks. The white is outlined with BV31 and hints of YR30. The faded blue background is BG000.

Have a great weekend coloring!

U of O Trade Show

Tools of the Trade Show, Nov. 7-8th
On Wednesday and Thursday of this week I will be at the University of Oregon Tools of the Trade Show as a guest artist. The show runs from 10am to 6pm each day. Last year I drew some really neat artwork. I've got some cool pictures drawn that I am looking forward to coloring this year, and I really hope you will join me!

Here is one of the pictures I drew at the event last year. I must say, this is my favorite illustration from 2011. I really can't wait to see what I draw this year!

The U of O bookstore is located in Eugene, on 13th and Kincaid. Parking is really tricky, but you can park over at the old hospital parking lot.

There will be many other fine artists and other art supply companies represented, so come check out the other fabulous talent at this year's show. There are lots of opportunities to win doorprizes as well.

I hope to see you there!
