08/28/06 - Tomorrow's CCG Meeting

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL EVERYONE!
8/29/06 - I have updated this post with some links...
At our next meeting (Tuesday, August 29th) we will be discussing PERSPECTIVE. If you have any favorite methods of constucting 1-point, 2-point, 3-point or beyond please bring the explanation with you or be prepared to demonstrate the method. Bring your reference material if you need it for constructing perspective guidelines.
Other topics to discuss:
  • 24-hour comic day in October: what do we want to do? We could do a mini version, perhaps a 4-6 hour comic... (see next item)
  • I have been thinking we should have a quarterly (4 times a year) "jam session" one day on a weekend somewhere with enough room for everyone to work. Send me your thoughts; best as a comment to this post or you can email me if you're too shy to comment.
  • Developing a group library with donated books, audio tapes and videos. For video ideas see: http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/dvds/bka01.html - look around under 2D dvds. I have ordered one of Scott Robertson's DVDs (perspective).
  • Start/support a figure drawing workshop targeted to Illustrators, similar to this: http://www.thedrawingclub.com/home.asp

  1. Cool. I have no clue about Perspective, seeing as how I hardly ever use it. :) But I'll bring a Kirby or Steranko book or two.

  2. Sounds like great ideas for motivation and discovery in artistic ability. Thought I'd through in my 2 cents, since I can't come to the meetings anymore... (sniffle, sniffle) WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
