Reminders!

There are a lot of things going on in the art world recently, many with deadlines fast approaching. We thought a few were worth reminding our readers of.

Live Demo with Greg Manchess


Tomorrow, Greg Manchess will be live demo for our Patreon Supporters. He will execute a portrait of (by then, former) President Barack Obama from start to finish while fielding questions from the audience. The event starts at 3pm EST, Saturday January 21st. These live demos are always impressive and this one is sure to be no exception.

Smart School Enrollment


Smart School is a 15 week online mentorship program to help artists make that artistic leap they've been trying to make. This is not a pre-recorded video lesson. It is actual one-on-one time with personalized feedback on your work from some of the industries top professionals. Enrollment for the Spring Semester just opened. Class sizes are sometimes limited to as few as 8 students, so if you plan on signing up, I wouldn't delay.

IMC Enrollment


The IMC workshop is an intensive week-long workshop in Amherst, MA, and has the reputation of being 'life-changing' for a reason. Imagine 4 years of college crammed into a single, awe-inspiring, week of painting, lectures, demos, portfolio reviews and special guests. There really is nothing else that compares. Attendance is limited to about 90 students each year, most of which are already gone, but there are still a few openings left.

Dean Cornwell Book Pre-order


The Illustrated Press launched a Kickstarter a couple of years ago for a limited run of a new Dean Cornwell art book. All 1000 copies subsequently sold out. But so many people were left clamoring for this beautiful book, that they are doing a second printing. The only guaranteed way to get a copy though is to pre-order one. If you missed out last time, don;t miss out again!

    1. Quick question. Is anyone free to submit for Spectrum? Or you have to receive some kind of invite in order to do so. Does digital art counts or its strictly for traditional? I've heard of Spectrum numerous times but never really went deeper into figuring what its all about. I just finished a digital illustration, and since the entry fee is 20$, i thought why not give it a shot.

      1. No invitation is required, Ihor. Just go to the website and follow the instructions. Professionals, amateurs, and students are all welcome to submit.

    2. When submitting work to competitions, is there a prevailing opinion on submitting a digital file vs a physical print? The digital file requirements seem to be pretty low res.

      1. Philip,
        When Spectrum first started accepting digital submissions I know of several artists who submitted both ways in order to see which stood a better. Ultimately, tr conclusions was that their acceptance percentage was the same regardless of submission method.
