Finding Your Voice as an Artist

In this series, artist Danny Galieote tackles a challenging topic that everyone eventually faces: how to find your personal voice as an artist. This second lesson will cover Danny’s design and tonal influences. He will begin with an analysis of Ivor Hele, Robert Riggs, and his own work, followed by several toned paper demonstrations. At the end, Danny will assign an exercise to help you put the ideas he discussed into practice.
