The Etherington Brother's Guide to how to stay CRAZY ENTHUSIASTIC about your art, FOREVER!

Here's one for those of you with long journeys ahead this Holiday season, who want us Etheringtons chattering in your ears while you're on your travels :)

We're very chuffed to announce that we were recently interviewed by the fine folks over at the LICAF podcast, in which we talk about...
  • HOW TO MAINTAIN MASSIVE LEVELS OF PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM THROUGHOUT YOUR ENTIRE CAREER!
  • Why you should base your WORK ETHIC on the unstoppable ambition of A 7-YEAR OLD KID!
  • The official way to say MONKEY NUUUUTS!!!!
  • Why we're RIPPING UP the rule book on how we publish our comics, and why you should too!
  • Why we HARDLY EVER do any CONCEPT ART for our books!
  • HOW Robin and I chose which one of us would WRITE and which would DRAW!
We have a lot of fun in this one - think we spend more time laughing than actually answering questions :)
It's a long show full of all sorts of other non-Etherington stuff, but OUR INTERVIEW BEGINS 21m 35s in: LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW RIGHT HERE!

2018 preview TEN: More NEW tutorials that EVER BEFORE coming in 2018!

It's been so amazing to get messages of thanks for the tutorials from so many of you, from kids, students and hobbyists just starting out, to professionals at companies such as Pixar, Sony Animation and Blizzard to name a few, all letting me know that these tutorials are useful and appreciated.

But we've only just begun! In 2018 I'm going to be giving you EVEN MORE new tutorials than I did this year, as I continue work towards my goal of building a COMPLETELY FREE online ENCYCLOPEDIA of drawing EVERYTHING!

Learning to draw is something which SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE, not just those who can afford art school or online courses and subscription services which charge a premium. I'm on a one-man mission to make a learning resource for drawing which is so comprehensive that you never need to pay to learn again, because online art education should be FREE for EVERYONE, FOREVER.

Paywalls DOWN, skills UP!

2018 preview FIVE: The art of STRANSKI reprint!

Ooooooh YEAH!! For those of you who missed out, we're giving you ANOTHER CHANCE to get the RAREST Etherington Brothers book there is: THE ART OF STRANSKI!

Despite a large overprint of the first printing, (and not counting a few boxes of books we have locked away for shows in the first half of next year) The Art of Stranski completely SOLD OUT within months of it's release.

The book raised £40,000 on Kickstarter earlier this year, but has been unavailable to buy online since, so, in the HIGHER TIERS of our March 2018 kickstarter you'll finally be able to get your mitts on this lost title! The book is a 100 page full colour hardback, and will come with custom 3D glasses.

So, that's the titles we're launching, BUT the MOST IMPORTANT info comes TOMORROW, as I'll be announcing how you can join our TOP SECRET MAILING LIST to be one of the FIRST to know when the Kickstarter goes live!

Stay tuned...!

2018 preview 1: WHAT IS LEARNUARY? How YOU can get involved, and what WE'RE going to be doing!

Right! Let's start this 2018 preview month off with the FULL DETAILS of just WHAT #LEARNUARY is, and WHY we're doing it!

As you know, I'M VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT SHARING CREATIVE SKILLS ONLINE FOR FREE, and as such I want to begin a movement where for 31 days each year we all FILL THE INTERNET with accessible, useful, empowering FREE art education.

Over the past few years I've seen many of the best creative teaching resources being LOCKED AWAY BEHIND PAYWALLS, which is excluding millions of artists from being able to access quality teaching online. At the same time, the landscape of how people consume the web has changed, with many spending the majority of their time online on social media sites, which have VERY FEW great resources for creative learning.

I want to change that, by making FREE bite-sized, social-media-friendly, high quality online creative learning FOR EVERYONE, created BY EVERYONE, available FOREVER.

No matter what type of or art or creativity you enjoy, I'm hoping you'll join me in bringing a wealth of learning to social media this January!

"Paywalls DOWN, skills UP!"

Now scroll down for our handy tutorial on how it's all going to go down!  #LEARNUARY!

Lorenzo!
