Today was our first day with the illustrious Charles Vess!
There were presentations and lectures (so much gorgeous work has happened over his career).
We came with sketches from a pre-assigned project -
- which Charles critiqued and gave input on.
(Look how attentively we hang on every word!)
Charles also brought all kinds of samples for us to see - from tons of preliminary work -
- to a whole bunch of luscious finished originals. A number from his most recent publications.
He's also working on a demonstration piece throughout the weekend.
Today was the sketch transfer. More steps anon.
Here we are - working hard!
Doing our own projects, getting input - from Charles and each other.
Good first day!
