About This Class
Join artist Roman Muradov for an in-depth look at the creative method he uses for creating narrative and conceptual illustrations. Inspired by his work for The New Yorker, the New York Times, Penguin Random House, Google, and the classes he teaches at California College of Art, this 75-minute class is perfect for helping visual artists of every discipline generate ideas, expand their visual vocabulary, and create sophisticated work.
Covering both concept and aesthetics, Roman shows you every stage of an illustration coming to life. From generating ideas and drawing with ink and graphite, to collaging and coloring the piece digitally, each step shows how a chance combination of words can lead to a beautiful illustration.
This class is ideal for illustrators, visual artists, and everyone who wants to explore the way inspiration works. Most importantly, you’ll leave with a smart method you can use again and again.

Roman is a very intelligent and insightful teacher. The exercises he uses really help you, as an artist, connect with your own mind and creativity.
I can't judge theoretical part, this approach to having inspiration is interesting, but a bit individual, but the process of drawing is really great! I Like both the process and the result very much and I picked up some ideas. Big thanks!
