Workshop

Inking: The Hidden Art

 Instructor: Cory Laub

In illustration, pencilers get all the glory but the art is often incomplete without the contribution of the inker!  In this seminar, explore the essential art of inking with artist Cory Laub.  Participants will be introduced to  inking using a variety of tools from brush to technical and calligraphy pens.  Learn techniques used in comics and illustration such as cross hatching and ink wash.  Students will learn how inkers define an illustrated piece, create depth, interpret shadows, and design special effects in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Discover what makes ink the medium of choice of so many great artists and how much fun this art can really be!  All experience levels are welcome.
