Workshop Information
Digital illustration is now the norm. Desktop apps are the tools of the trade. Chained to a workstation is expected until the image is delivered. Or is it?

Debate swirls about mobile devices as professional tools for an illustrator – that they’re only good for preliminary digital work which is then handed off to be completed on a desktop workstation. Mobile devices are more powerful and mobile apps are more capable than ever before. It’s now possible to complete professional quality work on a mobile device from sketch to final art.

Join E.G. Keller for an interactive presentation as he answers your questions while completing an illustration on an iPad Pro. He’ll explain the tools he uses; from apps to workflow; and how to deliver high end client work with minimal desktop effort. He’ll also share the process he uses to achieve a watercolor look in his digital work. The evening will begin with a short synopsis of his path from school to New York Times best selling illustrator of A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo. Bring your questions and don’t be afraid to speak up!
