Explained what I needed to know very nicely and kept his teaching at a level very suitable for my current skill level. Will work a bit on the stuff we went through and do another follow-up lesson. Thanks

Did you ever want to learn art from a professional? what about someone who's worked at pixar? an animation studio? freelanced? i did it all.

As an illustrator it's my job to figure out multiple concepts for one idea. As a teacher, i like to believe that there's more than one day of doing something. With my one on one lesson plan and schedule, i cater everything to my student's specific needs. Most teachers do things strictly out of the book but then you don't share your wisdom, personal experience or technique that's involved. i stepped out of the illustration industry to continue a life of teaching. i want share my knowledge with the future generation of artists and help them grow to understand why they love to do art.

About Tony

Would you want to learn art by the book or, would you want to learn from someone who has experience being where you are to being a professional making it his life goal? I'm here to share my personal experience and knowledge with you as an artist. i started going to art high school, college and the

Welcome to the world of Photography! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain an understanding of the basics. Basics such as the exposure triangle, how to compose and pick your shots, different uses for the tools found in Photoshop and Lightroom (post processing), how to effectively use lighting, and much more. As time goes on you'll be able to retouch and stylize your photos, to give them that professional look you have been wanting. All you need to get started is a camera and your eye. I look forward to seeing you and as always stay creative!

I've created many cartoons in the context of illustration, comics and 2D animation. My specialty is in expressions, character designs and story-telling.

My recent (on-going) achievement with cartooning includes a graphic novel/webcomic I've been working on, "Dinnersaurus Rex," with hundreds of subscribers across all websites it's been hosted on. I've also created many 2D animations for clients in the past.

My mission is to spread this knowledge of cartooning and to help achieve the goals of students.

About Emily

I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2012. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I also love

"I had the crazy idea of gifting to the girl I like a painting of her favorite flower. She lives in Shanghai and I was flying to over from New York. The problem was that I did not know how to paint. Because I had been so busy with work, I waited until last week before my flight to take lessons. Guiseppe guided me on how to approach my project and how to mix colors. Could not have done it without his instruction. Thank you."

The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai."
