    conceptart local "chapters"

    dont know if this has been mentioned here already, but its late sunday night so i thought i'd just type and see what happens.

    Has anyone thought of organising local meets? I know from experience that learning from a peer is much better than books/tutorials. Theres so much i've learnt from someone casually just saying "did you know you could do this,,," as they passed my desk.

    Similar activiities to whats suggested for the amsterdam workshop would be ideal even for smaller groups e.g. speed-painting, life-drawing etc.

    Plus social interaction is ALWAYS a good thing

    Just an idea from one nottingham, uk based wannabe

    thoughts/suggestions?

    Sadly, I'm a little to far away to be part of your meet, but overall I think this idea is a good one.

    Any SoCalers?

    I'm sure southern california is probably one of the most common residences here, has there even been anything here?

    in an ideal world we'd be able to click on a magic internet map that showed your location and anyone in the same area.

    I'm sure that theres lots of people near each other that dont even know about it.

    we could wear leather jackets and ride around on harlyes...no wait, thats the hells angels. Still, why should they have all the fun?

    I know there are a few artists in Utah, but I think most of them are professionals, and probably don't have time for something like this. It would be cool to meet some friends from here locally, though!

    I've been wanting to start a sketch group in Fort Lauderdale FL for a while now. We have a fairly large warehouse where we can set up for still life and possibly models at some point. If there is enough local interest I would be more than happy to make it happen. If anyone would like to get it going please send me a pm.

    I have the lamps and several easels. Also a fuil sized mannequin and many tables and chairs.

    If anyone wants to get a group going so we can learn and grow together just let me know!

    Comicon

    If any of you are gonna be in San Diego I think the Comicon would be an excellent opportunity for some of us to get together. San Diego is becoming quite popular with the gaming industry. It is ranked # 8 in the country and gaming studios will always need concept artist, 3D modelers, animators and inbetweeners. If any in the Southern Cali concept artist are willing to get together please get back with me. leave you ego at the door.

    <--- Elgin, near Chicago. At least, near enough for a meeting.
    Don't just practice. Also Practice the right things, the right way.

    Actually, the whole "ideal-map-point-and-click" idea COULD work...

    Maybe something along the lines of the Bravenet.com Guestmap service? Instead, we could categorize it by place...maybe have separate mini-forums for each place?

    Anyways, just a couple ideas.

    I'm in NJ, and I'd love to attend one if a workshop thing does spring up around here...
