Imaginism and Schoolism...

I had the great opportunity to hang out with the fabulously talented Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera of Imaginism Studios during the comic-con.

Over the past few years, Bobby and Kei have been releasing books on various subjects filled with great drawings and a plethora of guest artists. Most recently they released probably their best book yet, Subway Sketches, featuring guest artists Dean Yeagle, Thierry Lafontaine, Louie del Carmen, Jason Seiler, and Stephen Silver. I'd definitely recommend picking yourself up a copy at Imaginism's online store here. If you haven't already, I'd recommend checking out their other books as well.

The other totally exciting thing they have going on is, an online school featuring renowned artist teaching the specific subject that they're known to be a master in. What's particularly interesting that separates the course is not only its original, specially designed videos created for artists of all talents, but the individualised feedback videos that your instructor gives by drawing or painting on top of your own work.

Currently, they have courses on the art of caricature by Jason Seiler, Drawing the female figure with Alberto Ruiz, Character Design by Stephen Silver, and digital painting by Bobby Chiu. Check out what Schoolism's all about here.
