A Closer Look: Matt Forsythe

Hawaii chapter of SCBWI is happy to announce this two hour webinar with Matthew Forsythe. During this presentation, intended for illustrators, Matt will give us a closer look into his process. He will talk about his thumbnailing and design process, and what materials and tools he uses to bring his illustrations to life. He will be sharing progress images of a painting at different stages of completion and discussing what decisions are going into each step of the process. We will have time after the presentation for questions.

Recording will be up for one week after the event for the participants to view.
