San Diego Comicon We'll be at G6 & 7 with our Life Drawing Book

Hi all,
Who's going to COMICON this year?
Kei and I (Bobby) will be at tables G6 & 7 (same as last year).
I just learned that we'll also have our newest book "Life Drawing"! Come get them quick because we could only manage to get 100 copies there.

We wanted to make this life drawing book is different. It concentrates on COSTUMED figure drawing with only a few nude poses. Chalk full of tips and words of wisdom from Kei and I.

Unfortunately, we won't be selling the book online until a week or more after Comicon. The books will only be available at Comicon until the full shipment of books arrives at our studio. When the book is ready to be purchased online, people that make a purchase within the first week will get an autographed copy. After that, the books go to our distributor and will not be signed. I'll post more info after the Comicon.

We'll also have a very very limited supply of Water Worlds and Ancient Japan Sketches at the con. These books are currently sold out but I found a few extra copies in a box when we moved to our new studio a couple of weeks ago. I apologize but these will not be available online as well... only at the Con.

Painting People with Jason Seiler!

Schoolism Online Classes:
The Art of Caricature with Jason Seiler - starts July 24, 2009
By the end of this course, master caricaturist, Jason Seiler, will have you looking at people in a whole new way! For illustrators seeking to add high-end caricaturing to their repertoire, this course is a must!

Jason is a personal friend of mine and an incredible artist. I always say the best thing I could teach my students is how to learn not just my way to do things but as many different people as possible. Different ways to draw, paint and think.

9 lesson workshop with personal video feedback from Seiler on your paintings.


Here's a quote from an amazing artist and former student of Jason's: Patrick LaMontagne.
Having drawn caricatures for editorial cartoons for a few years, I was
pleased with the progress I was making, but was looking for some
instruction to bring my work to the next level. Having long been a fan
of Jason's work, I was hoping that taking some training from him could
help me breathe more life into my caricatures, give me more of a dynamic
style and more confidence in my abilities. I wasn't disappointed.

This course requires a solid commitment, and if cost seems high,
consider get what you pay for, and for the amount of
knowledge and skills I gained, plus the individual instruction and
attention, it was a bargain.

Jason's teaching style makes him a pleasure to learn from. He speaks in
a casual, easygoing manner with a great sense of humor, while still
being organized and professional. The lessons are well thought out and
proceed at a manageable pace, each lesson building very well upon the
one before. I never felt as if I hadn't been prepared for what was
required of me in the assignments, and his 'one on one' critiques were
very valuable to help me figure out where I went right and what I could
improve on. Jason was also generous with his time by answering email
questions and regularly offering suggestions and advice. What I was
most impressed with is his positive attitude and optimism.. He has a
passion for his work and obviously wants to foster that in his students.

This course was the best part of my work week from start to finish, and
I was disappointed to see it end. In what seems like a very short time,
my work changed dramatically and I got more out of this course than I
could have hoped for. If Jason ever teaches an advanced course on
caricature or any other course for that matter, I'll be in the first class.

If you're serious about becoming a better caricature artist, do yourself
a favor and take this class. You won't regret it.
