Well, summer is here, and with it comes conventions. And the biggest in the US is the San Diego Comic-Con. Patrick will be attending, mostly hanging out at the Archaia booth promoting the upcoming Starkweather: Immortal hardback, but also giving a Digital Painting Seminar!
The seminar is now officially up on the SDCC Friday Programming page. Here's the text:
6:30-7:30 Digital Painting Seminar: Patrick McEvoy (Starkweather: Immortal) demonstrates the art of digital painting with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. Using examples from his work on the Marvel Style guide, a panel from Archaia's Starkweather, and a cover from BOOM! Studios' Fall of Cthulhu, Patrick will step through various techniques, starting from pencils and working up to a final rendering. Learn how to bring a fully painted look to your digital artwork! Room 30CDE
So, if you're attending the con, be sure to be at room 30CDE at 6:30 Friday the 24th, and give Patrick a little love.
