Last weekend I attended a wonderful illustration workshop with Zelda Devon, one half of the art duo, Teetering Bulb. Â This intimate peek behind the curtain of the working processes these two artists employ was a fantastic and helpful eye-opener for the small group of students who attended.
Teetering Bulb is very prolific with brains packed full of mysterious stories that they like to share. Â Besides that and the slew of commissions they are hired to do on a regular basis, they are also in the midst of working on a project for DC Comics. Â Teetering Bulb‘s visual style is very unique; many people have asked them how they create their magical works. Â With this workshop, Zelda explained their working process from pencil drawing to digital coloring. Â She also did a small critique of each attendee’s work and talked about the art business, all in a three hour session that cost only about $75. Â Kurt Huggins, Teetering Bulb‘s other half, joined in towards the end of the session.
If you’re interested in taking part in Zelda’s next workshop, please drop her a line.
