Thoughts from 2015
Had an interview a couple years back with Annie Aqua at Helikon Gallery. 
I recently read it over and still agree with my thoughts on question 3 :) 
What do you think?
Here's the link:
Anyway, thanks for checking it out!

Workshops at Art Makers Denver 2017!
I'm returning again to Art Makers Denver, and this year's urban retreat is going to be even better than the last three! I'll be teaching two workshops over the three days.
My Designing and Drawing Costumes Workshop:
"This step-by-step workshop will have you designing and drawing costumes and clothing styles from the past—or wherever your imagination takes you! Draw costumes for fun, fashion design, children’s books, paper dolls, whatever! It’s easy once you discover these illustration secrets."
My Painting Amusing Animals and Mischievous Monsters Workshop:
"You’ll learn great new techniques for acrylic painting, techniques for creating whimsical and funny creatures (with luminous eyes!) and techniques for painting an abundance of textures. And you’ll leave with stunning paintings plus the knowledge to paint just about anything with acrylics. Even those familiar with acrylics will learn unique techniques for livening up artworks and creating more imaginative paintings."

As an experienced illustrator, I've used all these methods in character design for the film industry, children's books, poster designs, and gallery work. And I've over thirty years experience teaching both beginning and experienced artists these amazing techniques with great success. None of them are difficult and all of them are rewarding.
Here's the Art Makers Denver video from 2015 (I'm at 5:03 if you want to skip ahead):

 If you want to learn some solid, useful, and really fun art methods, you won't want to miss my workshops--and I hope you'll join me at Art Makers Denver 2017!

Harmonie at Helikon Gallery & Studios

New show!

From the Helikon site: "Two highly notable artists of illustration and the figurative arts come together in Harmonie, an exhibit featuring the intersection of styles and sensibilities between the figurative paintings of George Pratt and Felipe Echevarria."

George Pratt

Felipe Echevarria

"Ranging from watercolor, oil, pastel, and other traditional media, this body of work examines the beauty and mystery of the human figure. On the whole, ‘Harmonie’ is composed of aesthetic reflections on figurative expression, exploring the evocative power of color, texture, design, and style as harmonious parts of a single emotional and visual vocabulary."
George Pratt

There are two full galleries of these evocative works, plus hallways full of art to view, plus works in each of the Open Studios upstairs. This is a one-stop First Friday where you can spend the whole evening looking at amazing art! 

Felipe Echevarria

 Here are information links:
The show runs from May 3 - June 3, and the First Friday event is May 5 from 6 - 10 pm.
You don't want to miss it--See you there!
