Gnomon has announced Designing The Avengers: Age of Ultron, a free event exploring how Marvel Studios’ team of concept artists and illustrators reassembled the comic-book heroes for this year’s blockbuster movie.

Meet leading Marvel artists in person
During the event, which runs from 6-8pm on Saturday 8 August at Gnomon’s Hollywood campus, some of the studio’s leading artists will reveal their design secrets and share their experiences from the production.

Speakers include Marvel Studios head of visual development Ryan Meinerding, lead character concept artist Andy Park, senior illustrator Rodney Fuentebella and digital sculptor Josh Herman.

They will be joined by freelance concept designer Phil Saunders, and Marvel’s former visual development co-lead Charlie Wen.
