I have been conducting a slew of lectures, classes and talks over the past couple months at many amazing schools, Institutes, universities, companies, and organizations. It's been so great getting to meet so many amazingly talented people. But, with the exception of my lecture at the Art Institute of California Inland Empire back in February, none of my lectures have been open to the general public. So I am happy to announce a couple upcoming lectures and workshops that ARE available to the public… if you RSVP and register as instructed below… Here is what’s up: First is a lecture on Design and Visual STory Telling at UC BERKELEY in Berkeley California on Wednesday, April 25th. You need to RSVP via FACEBOOK to get on the guest list if you would like to attend this event. The schools of Digital Graphics & Animation, and Innovative Design have arranged this event. A huge Thank you to Alishea Gibson, A designer and Berkeley representative who really made this happen and got me up to Northern California. I am really looking forward to it. Next I am conducting a Character Design for Animation Workshop at the CONCEPT DESIGN ACADEMY in Pasadena California, on June 23rd . Spaces are limited and you must REGISTER ON THEIR WEBSITE .A big thank you to Kevin Chen for organizing this once again. I have been trying to arrange more lectures outside of L.A. because a lot of students out there are very interested, the thing is most school administrations are not. But I will keep inquiring here and there. Stay posted. I would like to thank places like Cal Arts, Chapman University, Loyola Marymount, The Ryman Program, the Art Institute California Inland Empire, and The Hettema group for allowing me to conduct multiple talks, presentations, lectures and workshops so far this year. It's been very fun.

Hi Shane, it's Stephanie (girl who showed you her sketchbook at LMU)! This is amazing, I'm reserving that date in June so I can hopefully make it to your workshop. Thank you again for coming by, your lecture was really inspiring. I hope you have a great summer!

Hey Shane,

Best way I know to get in touch, but just wanted to thank you so much for taking time to review all of our character design submissions from your recent talk at Berkley. So helpful to be able to see your critique of everyone's work! I totally agree about my left scrooge's handicapped hands and vague outfit, and that he probably would not own a dog, even if he kept it in a block of ice;)

Hoping to catch you again at a future workshop or convention...I'll be sure to introduce myself next time! Your energy, words and artwork are truly inspiring! Something that stuck with me after your talk(other then story, story, story!) is that I'll definitely be working hard so that I'm ready if/when opportunity arises:) Thank You Again!

Hi Shane, It's Magic. We met in your lecture in Berkeley. I wonder is it okay to post a photo I took during the lecure on facebook about the image of three monkeys (a round shape; triangle shape and square shape)you drew as an example? They are so cool and inspiring. Thx!

Hey Shane,

I really enjoyed your talk yesterday at the CDA in Pasadena. Glad to talk for a moment too. Your comparisons of the different tigers was lovely and you'd mentioned there were reasons each look the way they do (some are very obvious), but just as you talked us through the brilliance of Ichabod, , I'd love to hear more specifics in why those specific designs work, and others wouldn't. Also, Don Sahlin was one of the major powerhouses in designing muppets & translating Jim Henson's sketches-- you might enjoy this article

Fantastic work! Wonderful talk! Hope we run across one another again someday soon.
