Send Kelly to the IMC! by kellymckernan
Send Kelly to the IMC!

Hi guys! I'm trying to raise funds to attend the 2016 Illustration Master Class!


I've just launched a brand new campaign on Indiegogo to reach my goal! I've dreamed of attending for some time and I'm super excited to be able to offer a smattering of new and exciting things to help with the cost of tuition.

What's the IMC? It's a week-long workshop for artists and illustrators that are ready to level up their portfolio with the assistance of the industry's top professionals.

Some of the new items I'm offering are four new giclee prints with a variety of options for hand embellishments (including 22k gold leaf!), hardcover journals, the 2016 calendar, and 15 brand new postcards. Many of the rewards are exclusive to this campaign, so if something catches your eye, this might be your only chance to grab it!

The crowdfunding campaign will close in 30 days, ending on October 27th. If you are unable to contribute or see something that strikes your fancy, and you still want to help, sharing the campaign helps a lot too!

Immure by kellymckernan
Created for "In Service of Monsters," a Guillermo del Toro tribute show opening at Gallery 1988 West September 11th, 2015. 

My piece is inspired by the forthcoming "Crimson Peak" film. It was painted in watercolor and measures 11" x 14."


Edit: I am THRILLED to say that the man himself, Guillermo del Toro, purchased the original painting.

Right now, I'm running a crowd-funding campaign to recover lost savings, which will ultimately lead to having a studio space again (my impending daughter's nursery took over the space). One of the rewards I'm offering for contributions is a six week online watercolor class. This has been requested of me quite often, so I'm very excited to be able to offer it! 

There are lots of other exciting rewards available too, including a Process & Technique DVD if the class is too far out of your budget! 

Head over here for more information.

Hope to see some of you sign up! :D
