Well, after a somewhat bumpy start (...standing outside the venue for close to 3hrs), we finally got underway yesterday morning at the Coronet Theatre in Elephant and Castle for the 2013 Conceptart.org London Workshop. Jason Manley kicked things off with an interesting keynote speech concerning the importance of personal projects, before Kekai Kotaki took to the stage for a 2hr demo. He talked us through his process and answered questions from the floor, after which we took a quick lunch break. From there, Jason Felix gave a great presentation about the artistic journey and flexibility in the entertainment industry, followed by Phil Holland surmising his incredibly impressive career and offering observations from his path through Hollywood. With the delayed start, that pretty much took us up to end of the day, before the party kicked off around 9 (which I bailed on, as I was pretty ruined from a long week and very little sleep!).
Sooo... 3 more days to go, a bunch more demonstrators to talk to and a lot of artists to mingle with... game face on for day 2!
