Sketches at IMC

Quick post to let you know that I am at Illustration Master Class in Amherst, Massachusetts, where a group of 95 artists work on a college campus for a week to create a fantasy painting under the guidance of the full-time faculty and guest lecturers. 

Here's Mo Willems, children's book writer and illustrator, who gave a talk about his book, which include A Big Guy Took My Ball! .

We were also treated to a talk by New Yorker illustrator and character designer Peter de Sève. He told the story how he got started as an illustrator and found his way to his movie design work.

Hey James, if you wander over to the Jones Library (Amherst's public library) be sure to stop in and say hi to my buddy Chris Demarest. His traveling exhibit of portraits of WW2 soldiers is there for the summer. Chris also paints on-site, and can be found at his easel there most days the library is open.

Holy moly, 95?? The very first IMC I think capped at 40-50?

Glad to see it's growth, and hope you're enjoying yourself James!
