Note from the Education Director:
I want to warmly recommend that you take a careful look at these
amazing workshops we have lined up for the end of this month.
Mandy Root-Thompson's 2-D animation workshop gives participants a
very useful tool to create animated infographics for education or
science communication uses. A member posted an excellent ocean
fishing infographic that a conservation organization used to explain
the repercussions of overfishing, and it more clearly and succinctly
communicated the concept than words alone could do. And it did so in
a neutral and approachable way that was palatable and understandable
to a general audience.
David Killpack's workshop on Zbrush is not only an opportunity to
learn a useful software tool for digital 3-D rendering. It is also an
opportunity to observe how a master of digital illustration uses this
tool, note his particular style of rendering. Just as with
traditional media, workshops are an opportunity to learn and to share
the particular tips and tricks that we illustrators and artists
develop that support our body of work. I would recommend that you
take the plunge, even if you are working with other programs to do
digital rendering. This workshop will be a rich experience even for
someone who takes it without the intent to become proficient in Zbrush per se.
And of course the immersive experience of a Guild workshop includes
the camaraderie and illustrative expertise of the participants--I
attend a conferences or an Education Series Workshops and leave
feeling more skilled, more creatively curious, and more energized
about my profession and my work than when I arrived.
So take the plunge! Invest in your work, take a break from that
too-busy life that I know you are living, and join us in Fort Wayne,
Indiana! Find the link and more information under "Features" on the
GNSI.org home page.
