Inktober just got way creepier.
Meet Edward Kinsella’s Monsters.
A 3 hour drawing and painting tutorial, filled with the haunting characters and ghostly images from the studio of Edward Kinsella III.
*** THIS EVENT WAS BROADCAST LIVE ON OCT. 28 ***
Join Edward Kinsella III for our first Halloween-themed mixed media painting tutorial. In the spirit of Inktober, Kinsella will demonstrate 2 to 3 monster-inspired mixed media drawings. Each tutorial focuses on a unique process, technique, or challenge.
Students will observe Kinsella as he designs and draws the eerie and haunting characters that are a staple to his compelling and dark style.
Broadcasting live from his studio, the artist will answer questions about his career, skills, and the most popular question of all, “What pen are you using?” This is a fully-interactive event and attending students are invited to ask questions throughout the tutorial.
“I treat my sketchbook a lot differently than my illustration work. The sketchbook to me is really about reaction. The marks I make are done quickly and that really dictates how they turn out. I think that is what I like about drawing in my book…the challenge of drawing, painting, and composing on the spot.”
— Edward Kinsella III
