Watch our ITSme Learning Webinar Bundle!

Along with our recently launched self paced courses, ITSme Learning is excited to share our Webinar Bundle! These webinars were hosted as part of our quarterly illustration mentorships.

The ITSme Learning Webinar Bundle includes the “Look to the Movie: What illustrators can learn from Film” lecture by ITSme CEO Edward Burns and the “Star Agent Panel Q&A” with agents from Astound US Inc. and Advocate Art.

Learn more about each webinar in the bundle:

“Look to the Movies” Lecture
The Look to the Movies Webinar, presented by Advocate Art and ITSme CEO Edward Burns, goes into detail on how characters and illustration development are influenced by film! Find inspiration to create a movie worthy cast of characters in this lecture – filled with visuals and industry relevant tips. Hosted by Bhavi Patel, our ITSme Learning Course Director, this webinar also features a Q&A with Advocate’s Global Manager Amanda Hendon at the end of the presentation.

“Star Agent Panel Q&A”
Hosted by Bhavi Patel, our ITSme Learning Course Director, this webinar features a Q&A with Advocate Art agents Deborah Millinship and Vickie Savanella, and Astound US Inc.’s creative director Tina Doffing. Before joining their current agencies, each of the panelists held roles as either an art director or an art buyer. This webinar aims to help artists understand what people in each of these roles are looking for when evaluating portfolios and hiring illustrators. This Q&A session was originally held as part of our ITSme Illustration Mentorship program. The panelists are answering questions directly from illustrators in the mentorship.
