A Perilous Realm: Fantasy Illustration in Ink & Watercolour with Asher J. Klassen

Sat, October 21, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Sat, October 21, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

This demo will guide students through Asher's development process as a cartoonist and fantasy illustrator working in traditional media.

From conceptualization, to research and development by sketching and setting restrictions on your process; through drafting the initial forms, inking, and masking them; followed by the layers of underpainting (grisaille) and colour washes which pull those forms into an imaginative world of light and weight and atmosphere in which a story can be told.

Space is limited and registration is required.

Asher J. Klassen BFA is an Okanagan-based cartoonist and illustrator with a passion for what he'll ask you to tolerate him calling "material storytelling", but which is really just old-school fantasy and sci-fi illustration dressed-up to go out in fancy company. In the past few years he has worked and spoken internationally in artistic and academic fields, and now he's the creator of the super-rad sword & sorcery webcomic "The Mortal Realm", launching on Patreon mid-August 2017.
