We love to see our artist’s personal work and were particularly impressed with this piece by Serena Malyon called, Updraft. It was created during an intensive week that she spent at the Illustration Master Class.
IMC is a summer workshop that takes place in Amherst, Massachusetts for artists in the field of imaginative realism. Students attend classes from illustration perspective, drawing from the imagination, painting techniques, live demos and industry Q&A’s, as well as extensive individual one-to-one critiques. They have an amazing lineup of professional industry experts who share their knowledge, such as Donato Giancola, Scott Fischer, Mike Mignola, Greg Manchess and Irene Gallo – to name just a few.
Since returning from IMC 2015, Serena has produced this beautiful set of portraits of the instructors and portfolio review guests that she met. You can read more about her experience on her blog here.
