summer illustration masterclass in Vienna, Austria

UPDATES (May 8,2018): The workshop is sold out. Small number of slots are still available for Marc Burckhardt and SooJin + Chris Buzelli workshops. 

Hi, illustrators, what’s your big summer plan? How about coming to beautiful Vienna, spend four days with me working on your illustration idea skill, then spend the rest of the time wandering around seeing Klimt and Schiele in person,  then have your mind blown away by stunning architecture everywhere? Sounds like a good plan?

The first workshop in November 2015, and second workshop in summer 2016 were a big success. With participants from all around Europe and some from Middle East and all the way from Latin America, we had a dynamic and interesting small group of fun, hardworking and friendly environment for the four days we spent together.
We are having the workshop again this summer from July 16-19, 2018.  The course will run between minimum of 6 to maximum of 12 participants. You will work on multiple projects, some small some big,  that are designed to build and strengthen your idea skills. I will also give one on one portfolio review for those who are interested. This workshop’s target audience is intermediate to advanced level illustrators.

I hope you consider spending the summer with me. The rate for the workshop is EUR 600,00.

There are also workshops by Marc Burckhardt and by SooJin and Chris Buzelli right after my workshop.
