Interesting video on caricature...

A friend of mine just sent me this video, and I thought I'd post the link because its quite well done. It shows the amazing depth that a master caricaturist delves into to study his subject... a real art!

Good links

Still no art to show here... Just finished some more card art and have 4 more do do in the next month. Busy! Plus it looks like one of my workshops has filled up quite well, so that should be an interesting weekend of teaching.

In place of some cool fantasy art we have for you today a picture of a sarcastic owl..




Anyhow, I came across a few good links and thought I would post them...

Some tips for those in creative industries:

New podcast and workshop reminders

Just finished recording and editing a new podcast... in this episode we discuss other illustration fields, what your portfolio needs and how to survive the winter blahs. Give it a listen and tell me what you think!



Additionally, I need to pimp the courses I will be teaching soon in May:

Professional Fantasy art Workshop (County of Strathcona Parks and Rec.)

Fantasy Character Illustration (Paint Spot Edmonton)

I you have questions about these classes, drop me a line mike@sassart.com
Hope to see you at one of these, and I'll try to get some actual art posted on this blog soon!
