Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Thursday, August 13th at 3pm ET for a live online Zoom session with Robert Generette III, all about iPad illustration. Perfect for artists of all ages, in this session you’ll learn how to create a half-photo, half-illustration hybrid that’s 100% you. The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Robert Generette III is an award-winning illustrator, educator, father of two, and self-proclaimed "vector art monster" based in Washington, DC. Under the pseudonym Rob Zilla III, he uses an iPad Pro to create compelling sport illustrations and portraits for clients ranging from Nike Baseball and the NBA to Wacom and Adobe.

This live session will include a reference photo to get you started (download here), tips to level up your drawings in Procreate or Fresco, plus playful prompts to explore your creative voice. 

Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Rob and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event (discussion forum below) as well. If you’d like to draw alongside Rob, we recommend bringing the following materials:

We look forward to seeing you soon!
