Title: Free Illustration Classes on Cartooning?
Post by: Verla Kay on August 10, 2012, 10:10 PM
This was in my FaceBook email. I know NOTHING about it except what you see here. Be sure to check it out carefully before you register if you want to participate. Since I'm not an illustrator, I felt compelled to share it with all of you who ARE illustrators. :)

From:  Lauren Johnson via FaceBook

This is going to be an awesome FREE event for illustrators/writers and it is going to lead by amazing industry professionals. You should come, you should tell your friends. If you can't make it in person you should watch online in high def in real time.

Thanks for sharing, Verla!  I checked out their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/StudioZaPow) and then posted the information for other artists also into comic book art and illustration that might not have heard about it otherwise.
Wish i could go, but I'll be checking out the streaming video bits as I'm not close enough to attend either.
