My class is either based on general lessons meant to introduce you to the functions and tools of Photoshop, or, if you have a specific project in mind, we can undergo a collaborative workshop experience to generate your project while simultaneously developing your skills.
I have been a comic illustrator for well over a decade and have had many comics published. I work in Photoshop nearly every day and have a great many tips and techniques I have developed over the years that I am happy to share.
I require at least two hours notice of cancellation.
