IMC 2013 -- The Illustration Master Class

I love the IMC so much!!!  A week of wallowing in fantastic fantasy art!

Check it out:  Illustration Master Class IMC Website

They always sell out right away, so don't hesitate.
A core group of top-notch teachers working in traditional, digital, comics, gallery, children's book illustration:  Rebecca Guay, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Donato Giancola, Dan DosSantos, Greg Manchess, Scott M. Fischer.  Often with Iain McCaig and James Gurney.  With a main Guest Instructor, and many dropping by to give talks and lectures.

IMC 2013 had Mike Mignola as Guest Instructor (although he had to leave a few days early).

A list of assignments to pick from to work on during the week (held in Amherst, MA, in June), is given out beforehand.  We bring materials/supplies/computers to work on.  Live and eat together.

Around 100 students.

We were in the first floor painting studio.  There was also a room upstairs, and another room just for digital (darker and no paint allowed!)--
