My in-depth workshops are open for all levels of artists and are designed to help you develop your drawing skills, understanding of the character design process, belief in what you want to achieve, discover your self worth and help advise you in your career path. The workshop shows artists how to design effective characters in all styles, build a portfolio and build a positive attitude,thereby achieveing a greater enjoyment out of life as a creative person.
