I have finally gotten around to doing some online illustration courses. Now, for the millions of you who have written me clamoring for a course on how I make the perfect chocolate-chip cookie, I'm sorry, but you will have to wait.
In the meantime though, I am working on an in-depth course on illustration through the Lamp Post Guild. The course will be super in depth and will offer demos and step-by-step lessons which you will complete at your own pace. I will also personally give you a llama.
In my day, art education had largely to do with stealing books from libraries, or abducting experts and holding them at gunpoint until they told you everything. It was not unlike working with the mafia. Except we were after art training, and we didn't go in for silly hats.
Today, using the magic of the world wide web, we no longer need to use guns, threats of violence or even money laundering to get an art education. It's actually quite exciting how things have come along. Sure, we will miss the smell of cordite and gun oil after a long day of learning, but overall I think it is progress.
More to come...

*Note - I was kidding about the llama. Please don't ask me for a llama if you see me at a show. I will not give you a llama.
