Do you have a story that you just can’t wait to illustrate, but are having trouble getting started? Or maybe you just want to learn about illustration in general and refine your skills.  Then, you’re in the right place! The class will focus on creating characters based around an existing story, your own or one familiar to us all, and then experimenting with ways of visualizing them. We’ll then take the characters into the book and work on pacing and composition, while we explore style and expression. We’ll be working with a variety of tools, so bring your open minds and creative ideas for a wonderful experience in illustration. Teens 16+ are also welcome to enroll. David "HABBENINK" Habben is an artist and illustrator based in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.
