Walter Wick talk & Class Assignment

Hey guys! You have the assignment sheets, so I'm not going to go into too much detail...just remember, for class next week, band sketches, and on the blog-- 5 varied shape-based sketches (going off one of those character types).

Here's some of the artists we looked at in class:
Rad Sechrist also has a fantastic "how-to" blog for character development/storyboarding.
Annette Marnat
Fabien Mense
Kris Anka
Mindy Lee

Plus here's a great little comic on some quick character drawing lessons done by MY character development teacher, Brian Ralph!

ALSO-- here are some websites I use for finding reference photos: (general photos, can input specific search queries) (historic photos) (modern design in furniture & interior decorating)

Also also, is an all-around fantastic illustration resource. It's the premier illustration blog, and they showcase all sorts of stuff--artists, inspiration, events, books, videos, everything about the illustration world. I recommend checking up with it often, and you can search or browse its archives for stuff like "ideas" "typography" "how-to" "process" and come up with all sorts of great things.

The Walters Art Museum and MICA's Illustration Department present:
