Do you still use a mouse to draw in Photoshop? You may want to rethink that method. Come and see what kind of work these artists are doing when they switch out a linear switch for a dynamic craftsman's tool.
Whether you're a fan of Wacom or have never heard of them, chances are that you'll know the software these artists use. From Apple iPad to ZBrush, and everything in between, November's meeting will be one you won't want to miss.
ANWAR MADRIGAL / DESIGN & ILLUSTRATIONS
Anwar uses several several different applications - from Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to SketchbookPro and ZBrush. He'll come to show how he uses his Wacom Cintiq to create character illustrations.
Fifteen years of experience in the design industry working on licensed apparel development. Having created tons of top selling t shirts for properties such as Transformers, WWE, Cartoon Network, Disney and Star Wars apparel. generating huge sales at major retailers such as Walmart, Target, JC Penney and Kohls. A major part of Anwar's creative arsenal is the ability to illustrate characters, creatures and environments. Anwar is also a demo illustrator and 3D sculptor for Wacom and has shown the advantages of Wacom products at San Diego Comic Con, Long Beach Comic Con and many other events.
RYAN SUMMERS / IMAGINARY FORCES / "PERSON OF INTEREST"
Ryan Summers worked on Person Of Interest at Imaginary Forces. He likes animating in After Effects, drawing on his iPad, and spends way too much time on Twitter. He's twice as excited as anyone else that there will be more Star Wars movies to see in theaters.
Person Of Interest was a high-profile but quick turnaround project. With 4 artists and less than 3 weeks, the team busted out opening titles that would be on air in less than 24 hours of hitting the render button in After Effects. Along the way there were some important lessons to be had.

When & Where
Digital Media Artists \ Los Angeles
Digital Media Artists / Los Angeles (DMA/LA) is an association for professionals creating imagery for video, film, and other media using desktop tools. MGLA was formed in August 1997 through the merger of several previously-existing groups. DMA/LA is an extention of that - continuing in 2008. DMA/LA's area of discussions are not restricted to a specific hardware or software solution, understanding that an artist often has to employ 2D, 3D, and other digital tools to realize their vision - and that artistic inspiration can be universal.
