What People Are Saying:

I want to give you a HUGE thanks to yesterday's lecture.. it was really wonderful & the animators received a lot of benefit from it. I feel like you really taught us a lot of great techniques, and personally I really got a sense of what I could do to help our poses read much stronger. I especially liked the discussions on force (AWESOME!) and watching you draw over our poses to see what your thought process was. It was incredibly inspiring to see your work, I found myself often glancing over at your quick drawing and going "oh crap!" and then working harder to discover the lines I wanted. I really feel like the animators progressed quite a bit yesterday, even those of us who aren't the best at illustration. :) Oh, and just so you know.. the animators were already asking when you'd be back for more. :) Thanks so much for putting so much thought and energy into the class, I really appreciate it!

I wanted to say thank you for always taking the time to discuss my work during the live events. Its very helpful to get some feedback of what’s working and what isn't.

I'd just like to thank you again for coming out, a TON of people were coming up to me and talking about how much they enjoyed your lecture!


This is Friedrich from the Workshop in Cologne. Just wanted to thank you again for the awsome workshop! It was so hard to stop figure drawing and go back to work today.
