Artist and designer, Tom Pajdlhauser will be sharing his technique of quickly capturing observed moments with expressive and effective sketches. He will be going over the importance of understanding and practicing perspective & design fundamentals and how to apply them to loose, fun and exaggerated observational work. The goal of this workshop is not only to introduce you to Tom's technique and process, but to make your approach to complex observational sketching more confident, fun, informative, and appealing.
