Poster Artist Masterclass

Turn your Drawing Skills into Income

Artwork by master artists: Mike Butkus, David Grove and Drew Struzan

Have you ever dreamed of working as a movie poster artist? Do you want to get paid to draw your favorite actor, movie villain or comic book character? If you answered yes then you’re probably just like me…

Growing up I loved to draw characters and portraits. I always wanted to be an artist in the entertainment industry working on movies and tv shows, but I didn't know how to get there.

So I moved to Hollywood and tried to do it “on my own”...

Needless to say I struggled for years. Years of uninspiring, low paying jobs that lead to nowhere.

How I finally got my “big break”

It wasn’t until I found the right mentors, learned the right skills and developed the right mindset that I finally broke into the entertainment industry.

Now, after more than 10 years of professional experience working on blockbuster Hollywood projects like Deadpool and Birds of Prey, I’ve decided to teach and mentor others and help them reach their dreams of having the skills of a professional artist and getting paid with those skills.

Learn the Skills that Pay the Bills

Movie poster art requires a unique combination of skills. In this Masterclass you’ll learn the exact skills, tools and techniques needed to get your portfolio noticed and create high quality poster concepts and illustrations.

Here’s a sample of what you will learn:

  • How to draw faces with accuracy and likeness
  • How to design eye catching compositions
  • How to draw clothing with realistic wrinkles and folds
  • How to draw figures in dynamic poses in any angle
  • How to finish your concepts with beautiful shading and lighting
  • Portfolio building, professional networking and so much more...

Getting Work and Getting Paid

Unlike most art classes that just teach knowledge, Poster Artist Masterclass will also guide students on the business side of art. Students will be guided on building an effective portfolio and how to get hired as a professional poster artist. In other words, students will not only learn how to draw like a pro, but how to get paid to draw!

Students will learn real world business of art skills like:

  • Exactly what to put in your portfolio and how to get noticed by Art Directors

Feedback and Testimonials

Here's what former students are saying..

"The art instruction, the demo, and the frank discussion of behind-the-scene job experiences (what clients asks, what you submit, what feedback is given, etc).
