First, much thanks to John for his support of the CA community. John was one of the first people I went to when I had the idea to form Massive Black. His advice was absolutely invaluable as there are few who know the business better than he does...and his artistic talent is world class. He has been both a friend and a client and a supporter of our cause here. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without the advice and support of Mr. Mueller. With that in mind, I went to him to with the idea of doing something to help CA and keep this program moving forward. He is excited to help.
John Mueller is an acclaimed Art Director for the video gaming industry, his career spans 18 years during which he's worked for such studios as Interplay, Ritual Entertainment, Epic Games, NC Soft, and is currently Art Director at Vigil games on the upcoming Warhammer 40,000 MMO for THQ. Prior to working in video games he published the creator owned Oink saga for Kitchen Sink Press and spent many years doing freelance illustration for the entertainment industry.
He believes in concept development and strong idea development and since he has hired at major publishers, built his own game development studio and teams, and worked in multiple fields I can say that you will find the information you need about what you can do to your portfolio to climb the ladder to success.
When- This Saturday August 15th 1pm-5pm CENTRAL DAYLIGHT TIME
Where- Right here on conceptart.org in the streaming forums
How and How much: 95 USD - http://www.conceptartstore.com/podeforenin.html

John is as educated as it gets when it comes to this stuff and he will be able to tell you exactly what you need to have in your portfolios. He will be analyzing works, showcasing great samples, and sharing the info to help you get the career you want, get the job you wish for, or to get out of your current dead end gig and make your art life the way you want it.
We hope that you can make it. It is a rare thing to have an instructor like John join us and so please show him your support.
As is always the case, CA's proceeds are going to support the continued development of our technology that YOU will be able to use for free as well as many services that will help improve the lives of artists around the world, including your own.
