From distant futures to alternate pasts to fantastical flights of fancy, the first season of Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots offered us a darkly comedic and raucous ride into the world of animation.

With each episode of the animated anthology sporting wildly different styles, one can only imagine the exciting design challenges that come with working on multiple throughout the series. Well, wonder no more, because on Thursday, January 23rd, concept artist Marcin Rubinkowski will take the Lenovo Stage at Gnomon to talk about his character and environment design work for the shorts “Three Robots” and “Ice Age.”

Marcin will be breaking down his designs and offering audiences insight on the concept development process for projects like this. In addition to covering his work on Love, Death & Robots, Marcin will also be sharing career tips for artists looking to break into the industry, along with anecdotes about his own journey, which includes earning a Certificate here at Gnomon!

This event will not be live streamed and space is limited, so be sure to RSVP and arrive in good time to secure a place in line. Attendee check-in will open at approximately 6:30 PM and a valid Eventbrite RSVP will be required to get an event wristband.
