Art Forum Artists Challenge!

This Thursday night, February 25th, at 5pm in room 347 we will kick off the SCAD-ATL Art Forum with a challenge to our guests!

First there will be introductions and a show of work from each guest: Matt Kindt, Stuart Immonen, and Cameron Stewart!

Then they will each be given the same page from a comic book script and do breakdowns for it simultaneously. The breakdowns will be done on Cintiqs which will also be connected to large, flat screens so those in attendance can watch as they work! Once our guests have finished, they will individually explain their reasoning for how and why they did their breakdowns the way they did. It's an opportunity for students to glimpse into the minds of professional artists and what considerations they make when creating breakdowns and thumbnails.

This is a private event for SCAD students only! You do not need to sign up for Thursday night, only show up.
