IMC 2013 is off and running. It’s always exciting for me to work with so many damn good painters. And this year we have the pleasure of Mike Mignola’s company, fabulous critiques, and dynamic art to drop our jaws.

Scott Allie from Dark Horse is here all week doing portfolio reviews and lectures, as well as guest lecturers Mo Willems, Peter deSeve, and James Gurney.

Our core faculty: Rebecca Guay, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Donato Giancola, Scott Fischer, Dan Dos Santos, Irene Gallo, Iain McCaig, and myself….still turbo-charged about teaching with a taboo-less philosophy for drawing and painting. And the students are eating it up. They feel limitless, creative, and capable. Non-stop laughter for a serious passion to build compelling, story-telling images.

Man, I love this week.
