Hey folks!

I'm in the middle of making some tutorial handouts on the subject of foreshortening that a fellow Deviant asked of me so they should be up by early next week. I periodically teach at the LA Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, California where I've taught classes in composition, visual development and the design process. I love helping people overcome their artistic hurdles, so I hope those of you reading this will find them useful, if needed, or maybe at least pass them along to someone you know might want them. I do them out of my own free time and will so they're definitely for the benefit of people wanting to learn.

Until then have a great weekend!

I work as an Art Director in themed entertainment. I like to draw and paint comic book characters when I'm not eating pizza. I'm still figuring this site out, so please be patient. Thanks for visiting, and I'm always up for meeting new artists and talking shop.

I know this is gonna sound stupid, but what does a concept artist do exactly?

No, not stupid at all. It's not a very well understood profession and I wasn't even aware of its existence until well into art school. Concept artists help visualize ideas to life, whether for movies, animation, games, theme parks, basically any entertainment medium. They design the cool-looking costumes, characters, vehicles, props, environments, etc for anything that doesn't exist yet, but will hopefully soon. Hope that helps!
