UNLEASH: Register Now And Get On The Track To World-Class Creativity!
In the words of my father, “it’s either you are pursuing something or something is pursuing you.” This is one of the many wise nuggets I am grateful my old man, a typical African parent, enshrined in my psyche from a tender age. This probably accounts for my affinity for the tracks, and my appetite for stories of great athletes like Usain Bolt, who smashed world records by mastering their art. After reading such stories of rising from obscurity to becoming big on the world stage, I conclude that if they can own and master their arts, there is no reason why I couldn’t.
I knew early enough that I wanted to be an artist. That was the race I chose to run and, to excel in it, I was prepared to give it all it will take. With that in mind, I started my race officially (or so I thought) at Yabatech, where I was admitted to study Fine Arts. After crisscrossing several branches of art, I finally chose the track I felt I was best suited for – Graphic Design, with digital Illustration as my major interest. Though I felt I was getting close to the finish line, after all the lectures and countless trial and error, I discovered that I was only on the clustered lane where it was a lot slower to make it to the top, despite all the potentials I have in me. I needed something to distinguish me.
Fate smiled on me when a friend told me about the Toolz Academy ‘UNLEASH Training Series (Stream 1), which held in May. With the practical insights I gathered from the training, I effortlessly switched from the overcrowded trial-by-error lane to the ‘World Class’ lane in just 3 days. To put it more aptly, by enrolling for the Unleash training, I completed a race that would have taken me years, if I were to continue on the trial and error lane. Armed with my now world-class illustration skills, my market value spiked and I became a hot cake. Finally, I can say that my creative potentials are unrestricted; I am now world-class and three months after, nothing still beats that feeling!
Now that UNLEASH is back, bigger and better, I am excited that classes for the 2018 Stream Two will hold weekends only – four Saturdays from September 22nd to October 13th – to accommodate interested participants that can’t leave work during the week. Now, all my peeps that are amazed at my transformation from a regular graphic designer to a ‘Pro’ illustrator shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime. To make it more interesting, the training curriculum has been optimized to give added value. Beyond illustration, this series will also offer insights into the art of digital painting and concept development, uncovering salient secrets from the masters of the game, to raise participants’ output to world-class standards in record time. Participants will be provided with sketchpads and lunch each Saturday, and handed a certificate at the end of the training. That’s super cool, right?
Now, all you need to do to participate in the UNLEASH Digital Illustration Training and set yourself in a class of your own when it comes to your creative trade is to get a laptop and a Wacom tablet, if you have one, and make yourself available.
