Illustration Academy

I'm in the middle of the Illustration Academy right now and have to say that it is one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done in my life. The instruction here is absolutely fantastic and its very exciting to be around so many talented artists and teachers. It was a little scary to take time away from work to devote myself to improving my skills for the summer but I'm so happy I made this decision.

This is one of the assignments. I am depicting the 2004 Orange Revolution of Ukraine. Trying to work with acrylic paint for the first time is very tough but it is starting to make sense to me. I still need to clean it up a bit in Photoshop-- the scan is a bit blurry-- but it was an outstanding learning experience that was hopefully make my digital work better down the road.
