workshop in Seattle


It’s been like a month and a half since i’ve gone to the workshop in Seattle, and I’ve been meaning to say a few words about it.

So thanks to Nir G. , who sent me a link to another blog post about this subject, I got inspired. Seems like I need inspiration to do everything in my life.

This workshop was great in doing just that for art and creativity. Both in traditional and digital form. Once stepping into that space, you’re immediately exposed to amazing talents. All day long you can observe professionals work on the spot, ask questions, take pictures, while lectures are taking place in the same room. There’s so much going on in the same time that you’re probably missing out on good stuff while watching other good stuff. And in some point you realize that people sitting beside you are amazingly talented themselves.

On the first day i sat beside this guy Mark Behm, which was really nice and said he’s an animator at Dreamworks. We chatted here and there, but I had no idea he’s a super talented freak till the last day when he showed his portfolio, and then when i came back home i found out he’s known by animator-friends of mine. You can take a look at his stuff on his blog.

I spent most of my spare time with an entertaining group of students from Texas, and some guys from Vancouver, who were all staying in my hotel. There was a party on the first night, held in Seattle’s space nettle , that was pretty wild…

You can take a peek at what went on there in this video

Here’s some of what I managed to put on paper there:
