Super talented creative-duo, Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying are joining us at Light Grey Art Lab in what will be a memorable and exceptional creative time. We are so happy to announce that they'll be joining us!
We've had a crush on these guys for a while now -- and are really impressed with how driven, creative and how nice they are! We had the chance to meet them in person when we were in L.A. this past January and knew they were perfect for us!
Lucky for all of us, we've been in cahoots with them for how to plan an amazing, meaningful, and energizing workshop!
I'll let you guys in on a little secret.... we've been planning a concept art inspired show for this summer and we're totally excited -- because Victoria and Mike will be hosting their workshop AT THE SAME TIME as In Place! (our secret new show! Watch the blog closely this coming week for the call for art & details!!)
Mike and Victoria have a series of amazing workshops, lectures and demonstrations planned! With the IN-PLACE Concept Art Exhibition as your backdrop, and a series of intimate lectures, discussions and hands-on studio workshops on everything from working in the visual development field, to character development, storytelling with imagery, and developing exceptional stylistic techniques for your artwork, participants are challenged to step into Mike and Victoria's world and make their own artistic visions come to life.
We've got two and a half days of creating, concepting and collaborating in store that is peppered with awesome demos, out third ever ALL CREATIVES MEET & GREET, (where we invite all the creatives from the Twin Cities out to meet you guys at a local hang-out) some amazing lectures and discussions about everything from shop talk to setting up your portfolio, to speaking with guest artist, Mike Linnemann, an art director with the awesome experience of working with 100s of artists at Fantasy Flight Games.
Let us take you to all the great places to eat, chat your ears off, and get down to some serious art making.
All in our cozy space at Light Grey.
