MFA Week One classes are now history.

What a week. I have drawn more this week than I may have ever in my life. I have been given wonderful direction and my mind has been opened to new ways of creative picture making and storytelling. This program pushes individuals to reach beyond what they know with encouragement.

I already have seen my thought process move in new directions and it has only been five days of classes. The Business of Illustration is really good. There is so much info that I had not considered for getting into new markets.The instructor os really good at communicating ideas to us. The other class that I had this week was Ideation, which is concerting. How to build a visually compelling story. It is Amazing how much these instructors know. Then we had some fantastic guest lecturers.

The images I am showing now are some of the thumbnail concept drawings and then a final composite sketch. 50 thumbnail sketches for each of the 6 comps. That is 300 thumbnail drawings in three days in addition to the other classes we had. We all did it and are better for it.
