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.

Exceptional class! I really enjoyed hearing the artists' stream of thought, the way he thinks and the reasoning behind selecting certain concepts over others. Will definitely do the project and post my work for critique and opinions. Thank you, loved it!
