Wesley Burt is officially returning for his second year as an instructor at The Illustration Academy. Burt can take credit for developing some of today's most prominent characters and environments in the entertainment and video game industry. 

Burt will be instructing for the entirety of Week 3, alongside acclaimed illustrators Vanesa Del Rey, Sterling Hundley, John English, and George Pratt. These 5 artists will guide students as they complete the Week 3 assignment. The immersive educational experience will consist of lectures, demos, and assignment critiques.

On Monday, students attending the third week of The Illustration Academy will receive their assignment from the visiting artists. Students will then have the duration of the week to complete their assignment in between IA events. 

Figure drawing is hosted three nights a week and all of the visiting artists attend and draw alongside the students. This is a fully immersive and hands-on education that is designed to mimic a mentorship.

Wesley Burt has worked on The Transformers Franchise, TMNT 2, League of Legends, Bethesda, Fallout 3 & New Vegas, EA Games, Sims 4, Warner Brothers, Batman Arkham Origins, Hasbro,  Magic: The Gathering, and many others.
