Stumptown Preview #1: Perspective Grids

The Stumptown Comics Festival approaches. This year’s event will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on April 16th and 17th. As usual I will be attending, signing books and selling artwork at my own table, but this year I will also be doing a presentation, a demonstration of drawing in perspective using the pre-existing grids from the DVD which comes with my new book Extreme Perspective!

David Chelsea is listening to: “Packing For Mars” by Mary Roach

The presentation will include a slide show of sketches drawn over grids- a number of them done during down time at previous Stumptowns.
