Hey everyone! Did you read that title?! Well, it's true! I'm so excited to announce that I will be a part of MCS 2.0 this year as one of their instructors. I filmed my course a few weeks ago, and let me tell you guys I couldn't be more excited to bring you this content!!
So, what is MCS? Well, some of you may know from last year, but Modern Calligraphy Summit is a collection of online courses catered to the calligrapher, artist, designer or even hobbyist looking to grow leaps and bounds in just that! Think seasoned professionals teaching you from their own studios the tips and tricks they've learned along the way. For my course, I will be providing you all with in-depth instruction on my watercolor process from paintbrush and paper, to how to properly scan and digitize watercolor and then my secrets for cleaning up my paintings in Photoshop. This is the real deal, guys. I've been getting asked a TON this past year about which scanner I use, how I remove the watercolor paper background in post-production...and let me tell you, this info didn't come easy to me! I've been spending most of my career as a creative professional fighting the battle of self-taught designer and I've found an amazing solution to (miracle rather), for digitizing watercolor so that it looks like the original sans paper background. If any of you are watercolorists who have scanned and brought your work into Photoshop, you'll know what I'm talking about - it's pretty tricky! But with my course, these techniques will be demystified. Promise.

Sitting there on google late at night by yourself trying to figure out a few Adobe tools can be quite maddening. Or even if you are comfortable with Adobe programs, understanding the foundations of watercolor, the materials that work best and how to paint and design a repeat pattern will be so valuable to learn. Yes! We cover my technique for designing a repeat, it's good stuff.
Believe me, watercolor, calligraphy and design wasn't something I ever thought I would do - it snuck up on me! But, this passion and career of mine has impacted my life in so many ways - for good! I can't imagine my life without them. I hope you join in the journey of continuously learning and challenging yourself to be better.
