April 5th, 2010, 12:29 PM
I am really excited about attending the Illustration Academy this summer. Who else from the community plans on attending Richmond this summer? Looking to connect with a few people prior to the summer. Hopefully the Illustration Scholarship winner Jenna Chew will be there :D
I can say from first hand experience Pratt and Chayka are amazing mentors/instructors/artists. A collection of these types of people in one place means one thing. growth Growth GROWTH :D
Also, I am looking into a few other options for living, if anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

Robert Meganck will be helping out quite a bit. John English will also be attending one of the four weeks. Although not finalized, we will be pulling from the list of amazing Academy talent. The following list will be equally distributed between Richmond and Kansas City: Jon Foster, Gary Kelley, Mark English, Anita Kunz, Chris Payne- more to come!
The Illustration Academy has been a life changer for so many in this business, including myself, Jason Manley, Doug Chayka, Josh George, Jenna Chew, Josh George, Jeff Love, Ted Kinsella, Robyn Hyzy, Robin Eley, Trey Bryan, Jane Radstrom, Andrew Wright, Alexander Klingspor, Jim Burke, and many others (sorry to the hundreds of others that I left out!)
If you are looking at making inroads into the business, the industry, The Art Department, etc., then the Illustration Academy is the right place for you!

I'll be there! I'm a bit curious about the housing too. Can't get a plane ticket until we know which location we're going to end up in.

John English Demo Online!
John English Landscape Painting is now online, listed under Demos and John English.
John really gets into his thought process in this video. After you watch this vid a couple of times,
you will want to have it playing in the background as you work so you can just listen to the
words and ideas.
PODS for TAD are being populated.
As time goes forward, the TAD Kick Off is growing near. June 17th is the Studio Kick Off of the
first TAD semester. Students from all around the country will converge in Kansas City for a three
week studio session. After that, some people stay in KC, and others will continue to Austin or
Richmond to start living the studio experience in their respective PODs. Studying online in the
Elluminate Educational Environment as well as taking part in a POD studio is the "hybrid" art
education experience that John English and Jason Manley have envisioned.
Additional Models Being Processed for VLP Figure Drawing.
We are continually working in the background to photograph models for Figure Drawing. Keep
posting those images, and keep drawing and THINKING! It never hurts to go back and watch
Mark's Figure Drawing Demos!

It isn't as though the awesome factor wasn't already at ten! It's now through the roof. DAM This is almost intimidating for sure.
