Industry Night @ Almost Gold

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year in Chicago, and it always a great time to host an event. Chimirus held its 9th event at Almost Gold just last Thursday, with a special thanks to Linas Jodwalis and Paul Klinke for their hospitality. It was awesome! To be in a super cool creative space with tons of talented folks was just an amazing feeling. We had friends from our small beginnings come back, and LOTS of new faces join us too!

I want to thank our speakers again, Katrina Nelken, Travis Overstreet, Dave Pryor, Rotimi Solola, and Jason Teegarden-Downs for providing so much professional insight, as well as showing awesome creative works. We really do have a great community here. I also want to thank our friends at Hellion Cold Brew for providing some of the best coffee we ever had—you all said it, we believe you!

Chimirus was also very excited to launch our upcoming LIVE classes for 2019! You can see more here! We have Photoshop for Production, Complete Character Design, Stylized Concept Art and Pro Storyboarding. Spaces are VERY limited, so please reserve your spot on our wait list.

Industry Night happens quarterly, so we will see you next time with a new roster of local professional artists, designers, animator—creators of creations! Here are some photos of the event, enjoy and thank you!
