Speaking and teaching at FOWD

Posted on 12 March 2008

I realised today that I’ve yet to publicly mention the fact that I’m speaking – and teaching – at FOWD London in April. So here I am, putting that right.

This event is special for a number of reasons. Firstly, instead of just speaking, I’ll be teaching a half-day workshop entitled ‘Professional Photoshop Effects’ (details here). Secondly, if that wasn’t enough, I’ll also be partaking in a Layer Tennis-esque match live on stage with Jon Hicks, Jina Bolton, and Hannah Donovan. Thirdly – phew – the last day of FOWD also happens to be my last day at Carsonified, so I think there’ll be a fair amount of partying to be done.

Besides all that, I’m just generally excited about seeing some good friends again (the speaker line-up is amazing) and putting faces to a lot of names: there are quite a few chaps and chapettes who I’ve been wanting to meet for some time. So if you’re up for some fun in London and want to attend one of the best events in the industry, come and say hello! There are still plenty of places left on my workshop, by the way, and I think it’ll be good fun. Who knows? I might already by drunk by that stage.
