A week or so ago, I had the opportunity to travel from California to Louisiana to work with the students at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette for an entire day. I’ve never been to Louisiana, but the people were warm and friendly, and there were good eats to be had all around. I must say, crawfish are amazing. I’m not sure how to spell what I had to eat, but it was delish.
We started the workshop around 10 AM and plowed through the entire day non-stop. We covered everything from basic sketching, drawing through, primitives, warming up and line quality to marker sketching, photoshop rendering, and some light illustrator work. There was too much to cover in too short a time for me to take a break. Down there, not taking a lunch break is a sin, but I had to keep going. After all, the reason I do these workshops with schools is mostly to give back and give students what I didn’t always have when I was going through school. We had a great time and as far as I can tell, it was good for the students.
As always, if you’re interested in having me visit in person for a workshop, contact me at spencer [at] idsketching.com
