Big news! Are you ready to get creative in 2013?? I am! And I am so excited to announce that I will be leading a 2.5 day intensive illustration workshop at Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis, January 4-6! The wonderful Lindsay Nohl (of Light Grey Art Lab & Paper Bicycle) contacted me about putting this workshop together. Lindsay has a lot of great resources around Minneapolis and at LGAL to draw on (and had previously set up an illustration bootcamp with Meg Hunt), and it’s great to be partnering with her & the LGAL crew!
We’ll be covering a lot of ground in a lot of different ways, including group discussions, one-on-one creative sessions with me, talks with other industry professionals, and a big fun illustration meet ‘n greet party! We’ll be talking about creativity and idea generation, the business and practice of illustration, illustration process, and more! Plus we’ll have an exciting in-studio project which will be featured in the gallery. This will be a collaborative experience, and whether you’re a current creative professional or just want to kick-start your art in 2013, we’ll be working together to help & inspire each other!
Space is limited to 18 participants, so reserve your spot now!
You can see Light Grey Art Lab’s writeup on their blog, and check out the sign-up page for the full schedule, specifics, and prices!
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Re-blogging because I’ve signed up for this workshop with Kali Ciesemier in January and I’m SO EXCITED! Like, pill-popping-Jessie-Spano excited.
