More Free Online Classes!

Hi Everyone!

There was such a great turn out at the last online critique, demo, and Q&A, and there was not enough time to go through all the artwork and questions. So I've decided to do a couple more sessions during the campaign, and would love to see you there!

  • June 22, 3pm EST / 12pm PST

  • June 29, 3pm EST / 12 pm PST

  • July 7, 5:30 pm EST / 2:30 pm PST

I will continue to go through the artwork and questions that were already submitted but for those that would still like to submit artwork, you can do so here:

You will be able to submit your artwork to be critiqued, or you can just attend, learn and be part of the conversation!

The session will run approximately 60 minutes. Artwork will be reviewed in order of submissions. We will try to get through as many critiques, as well as demos and answers to your questions, as we can in that time!

The link to the online Adobe Connect classroom will be available on the campaign page 15 minutes before the event.  It can be streamed through your browser.

It's been a long wait! I have been dying to share with all of you that the 2nd volume of my drawing syllabus - Functional Anatomy - is on the horizon!

The Kickstarter campaign for this 2nd book will be launched June 8 at 12pm EST. There will be a discounted option for the book for the first 24 hours of the campaign, be sure not to miss out!

I am so excited to get this course published and sent out to you!  

Don't forget to save the date for the live and interactive online class with demonstration drawings, artwork critiques (poses - human or animal, figure drawings, illustrations, character designs, animation keyframe poses, etc), and a live Q&A on any drawing topics you would like to discuss - Posing, Gesture, Anatomy,  Design, and Perspecitive! This will take place to help launch the campaign for Functional Anatomy.

You will be able to submit your artwork to be critiqued, or you can just attend and learn.

The session will run approximately 60-90 minutes and begin June 8 at 3pm EST. Artwork will be reviewed in order submitted. We will try to get through as many critiques, as well as demos and answers to your questions, as we can in that time!

The link to the online Adobe Connect classroom will be available shortly before the event. It will be announced via the mailing list and social media.  It can be streamed through your browser.

Drawing Workshop at Comicon!

Looking forward to another year at Comicon! Hope to see you there! We will have the lovely character and burlesque performer, El Diablo, as Poison Ivy!

As well, The Youssef Drawing Syllabus: Movement & Form will be available for purchase and book signing.**

**Please bring cash for book purchases, as the wifi reception for online transactions has been inconsistent in the past. We will try, but we have found the conference centre panel areas to have bad reception.
