Man Lips and Corel Painter
Wow, this week (like all weeks) seems to be a crazy one!
I had a great time today in all of my classes.
It's been a heavy load this semester.
This afternoon I got to be a guest speaker in Kelly Brown's digital illustration class - which was a lot of fun. Even though I spend Monday and Wednesday nights over at MCAD, there were a lot of new faces in the class that I hadn't seen before! I was happy to see a couple great people in Kelly's class from my Monday / Wednesday Tools of the Trade class.
I had the chance to teach digital illustration for the last two years over there and it is a really fun class. Being that I spend the majority of my time in the computer for work(s) - it's really nice to go to school and demo some of the really fun stuff that I've learned over the years.
Today I did a really short Corel Painter Demo using a sketch that has been around for a while. It was a sketch of a man that I did in an old sketchbook -- brought to life today by 10 minutes of working with the pastel tools. I actually really like it!
I also had to say goodbye tonight to my Thursday 'Developing Professional Prints and Patterns' class that I teach at MCAD for the continuing education program. It was a really inspiring day watching everyone bring in their patterns from the last 10 weeks in for one final sharing / critique day.
Sometimes I just have to shout into the universe how great it is to be a teacher. I can't believe it'll be 10 years of being on the MCAD faculty list this next spring! Yipes! Anyway. I had a great day and I thought I'd share! I hope everyone is staying inspired and having a great time doing so! :)
