Learning from Giuseppe Castellano, Art Director at Penguin Random House

This winter I participated in art director Giuseppe Castellano's 3-Week Illustration Workshop, one of the classes available in The Illustration Department at his website. I can't say enough good things about the experience! I learned so much from his critique of my portfolio—and I'm excited to implement his advice as I move forward and create new work.

During the workshop, I had to create a new illustration based on a prompt. This was my final piece, although I would like to make further changes on feedback I received during the last session. Seriously, I learned so much!

I plan to sign up for another critique from Mr. Castellano in the future. If you're interested, you can learn more at his official website.

I created this as a homework assignment for Giuseppe Castellano’s 3-Week Illustration Workshop. I learned so much! It was a great experience.
