NESCBWI Illustrator Day, Nov 19th

I hope you will join us on November 19th in Manchester, New Hampshire for Illustrator Day. This is a program sponsored by the New England chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) The very talented Carlyn Beccia and myself will be doing an encore presentation of our Digital Painting Duels program that was first given at the 2011 annual conference. Here’s a class description.

Digital Painting Duels

Are you new to digital painting and wondering what program to use? Or maybe you are an experienced user and would like to learn more than one program? Welcome to the Digital Painting Duels where artists Jennifer Morris and Carlyn Beccia spare off to demo Adobe Photoshop vs. Corel Painter in the bloodiest. knock-out, digital brawl of the century. See some of the hottest digital painting tricks including; secret brush techniques to mimic traditional media, creating rich textures and patterns, and ways to fix compositional problems. Learn which program to use in your art and place your bets on who will be left standing.

It’s much more amiable than the description implies. Let’s face it, we all know Photoshop is the most amazing product on the face of the Earth (wink). But we did cover lots of nifty tricks and tips that will help you with your digital artwork. If you missed our presentation in the spring, I hope you’ll be able to join us on the 19th in Manchester.
