The portfolio critique is a great idea! Who are the artists involved?

We're talking to several folk at the mo. Darrin White, Larry Brogan, Bez, Jo Cappobianco, Mike DeVries and others. (basically anyone I can collar who isn't to busy for an hour or so over the weekend)
We plan on doing a few over the weekend and hope to have different artists doing this if they have time.
Will have more info soon.
We're thinking that this could be open to apprentices as well.

Opening it up to apprentices would be brilliant and a very popular venture - something you're offering that I don't think any other conventions are?

I think thats a great idea... gives apprentices a chance to get feedback on their portfolio without bugging the artists while they're trying to work... or the confidence to approach the artists because they don't want to bug them while they trying to work!

It's not a good idea because I can't go!


Serious answer - If that was open to wannabe apprentices you'd certainly have a lot of interest, but I imagine the artists would also have to sift through a lot of shite.

Could they not open it up to pre approved wannabe apprentices? Ie they send some work or something see if they are good enough for a pass? Prob totay unworkable but an idea.

We're still working on the apprentice idea at the moment, as you said there could be quite a demand from the artists sitting on the panels and at the end of the day they are over here to work as well so we're going to have to see how much time they can offer.
But if it's do-able, we'll do it - could be a bit of fun!
