Vis Dev talk at Entertainment Art Academy, Nov

HI Everyone,
Well after three wonderful months of getting to know our new son, I will be posting again and will be giving a talk and demo at the Entertainment Art Academy in Pasadena Ca. On Nov. 12th from 11-2pm. I believe we are trying to go on line as well so more people can view it from different locations. It should be fun and hopefully informative. I will be primarily talking about my approach to feature Animation Vis Dev. As well as how to get a job as a vis dev artist.
I will also be giving a traditional painting Demo which usually helps to illustrate my approach... I always appreciated demos when I was in the audience....Well that and I think talk is sometimes cheap. Though I usually talk my head off and try and keep up with the questions while I paint.
I will be talking about how to apply to F.A. , if your not already in it, and what you might want to focus on when considering a career in Vis Dev. Please come by and say hi and check it out. I usually bring lots of originals besides the slide show.
Here are a few paintings to show a range of styles.
Thanks for being patient and for checking back and bothering to say hi.
Call Mike Mattesi for more information and to register at 1-626-440-5155or at

Woo hoo! You're back! Hey, awesome work here. Also, congrats on the baby again. I know from personal experience how important that bonding time is in the beginning. Mom is around a ton more so Dad's gotta get his time in. Even so, when my boy started talking it was a while before he stopped calling me Mommy. He just turned 3 yesterday. The time goes really fast so cherish it. Great to see you post again. Hope all is well and take care!

THE MAN IS BACK IN THE HOUSE. Wonderful work Sam. I'm glad you guys are reaching a somewhat more relaxed . . .sleep through the night time, I hope.

Great posts. And I would love to grab a seat at your presentation. I am ESPECIALLY interested in your demo and how you go about that. I have been trying to push myself in that direction with color and compostion for the last 6 months or so.

Great work as always and WELCOME back.

Hey Sam and welcome back:)

All your work is stunning! I really wish I could hear your talk on Vis Dev. You mentioned you might go online with it? I'd definitely be interested in that, it sounds like the seminar was made especially for me;).

Have a great weekend.

HI Guys,
Thanks for the warm welcome back! Our little guy is sleeping through the night..... hopefully it keeps going on.
The work shop might be on Nov 12th instead of the 5th. The great John Nevarez is talking that afternoon and I would be in the morning, so it could be a fun cay with the two of us.
Mike at the school will beam it out to anyone who wants to check it out over the web.
More to come.

Stunning work! There's a sort of power and magnificence to your imagery that would inspire any film makers to go forth and try to capture the essence of what you design visually.

Grant Alexander said...
