LAURA ZUCCHERI was sharing her professional story in College of X last Saturday.

The FIRST woman drawing for the famous 50years long comic series TEX was generous, approachable and full of advice. Specially her strong emphasis on the importance of originals and working in an analogue way, drawing every day was fascinating.

Thanks so much dear Laura to give an invaluable perspective on work and practices and how to bridge from Italy into the French market (see her work on „Swords of Glass“ by Humanoids represented by Splitter in Germany).

CHRISTIAN PASQUIARELLO, German dirextor of the sci-fi movie S.U.M.1 (2017) in our X-SEMINAR in the College of X space. He was generously telling about his experience to write and create a story like this in Germany and shoot with a star like IWAN RHEON (Ramsay Bolton from GAME OF THRONES) and gave insights how to develop a script and characters. Fascinating. Get the Blu-Ray, make your own verdict. ;-) #sci-fi #christianpasquiarello #sum1 #iwanrheon #gameofthrones #alieninvasion #germany #monsters #fear #controlyourfear #controlisnotcontrol #collegeofx #insearchforcharacter #berlin @ College of X

Learn to draw playfully.

Teaching aspects of visual arts through drawing challenges and story games in a non-linear, fun, but also serious way. Much of education for enhancing art skills are still done in style of analogue class rooms like 200 years ago. Still, most of the people now spend the majority of time with digital tools or consuming visual arts digitally. XPECTRE changes that with social drawing challenges and innovative story based games.
