The workshop is a five day long, intensive workshop for fantasy artists looking to improve the focus of their portfolios, up their social media presence, improve their techniques for presenting and exhibiting at conventions and galleries, and to get inspired as a working artist.
Between the small group chats, discussions at meals, work-time, or slide-show presentations, there is a lot to absorb in this workshop. Last year I really enjoyed getting to watch Justin Gerard work on a watercolor painting while talking about the techniques of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac.
The beautifully charming Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, TN is the venue for the workshop. Tuition includes lodging in private dorm rooms, 3 meals daily served in a magical dining hall, and a lovely facility space for working and learning.
This year I'll be joined by Steve Argyle, Vanessa Lemen, Ron Lemen, Sam Guay, Tim Von Rueden, Sean Andrew Murray, Sam Flegal, & Peter Mohrbacher on faculty.
My specific talks/contributions will be a slideshow about managing an IP (more about what that can become in terms of products rather than the legal wrangling...but some of that too in the Q&A if it comes up), Model Building your own references, comic storytelling, and 'Story Time with David': where I basically just have an open Q&A about anything and everything.
