Russell and I will be co-teaching a pre-conference Photoshop CS5 workshop, From Reality to Renaissance, at Adobe MAX 2010 this coming October 23-25 in Los Angeles, CA. Using brushes from my Artists' Brushes for Photoshop CS5, I painted the above promotional image based on a photograph of Russell. Yes, he really dressed up for the occasion! Here's more on the workshop:

Starting with photographic portraits we will turn reality into renaissance. Participants will unleash the powerful combination of cameras, computers, and Adobe Creative Suite® 5 software to produce an original artwork on canvas.

This class will introduce you to a new set of creative techniques that will be useful for both designers and photographers. Our goal will be to turn the normal into the unique. Taught on the latest Mac computers, Russell Brown@MAX offers a limited class size and an intimate, inspiring environment for in-depth instruction on Photoshop CS5 and many of its new features. This unique, project-based class gives you time to ask questions of industry experts and network with others in your field. If you like crazy and inspirational events, then this is what you've been waiting for.
