Student feedback...

Chris and Irene create a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, which makes it easier for people like myself to learn how to draw in this style. I particularly enjoyed their approach to teaching different techniques, like exaggeration, 3D, shading, composition and so much more. It’s amazing how these little tips can transform a simple drawing into one that really pops off the page.
