About the instructor
Hey guys! I'm Chris and I've been seriously drawing since before I can remember. My parents still have childhood drawings hanging all over my house (even though I'm so much better now). Surprisingly enough, I didn't take any art classes in high school, but I majored in Studio Art and English in college. I love all forms of art, but I especially love lettering.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the format?
The course is self-paced, meaning you can go as slow or fast as you like. All of the videos are less than an hour so you can consume them in one sitting. You can also go back and replay sections as much as you want!
How long do I have access to the course?
How does forever sound? That includes access to any updates I make to the course! (and I’m already planning updates because nothing is ever perfect)
Can’t I find the information elsewhere?
With the internet, you can find anything you want. You will absolutely find some information on how to do brush and hand lettering, but I’m offering you two things that the internet doesn’t offer:
- All of the secret tips and tricks I’ve learned (the parts that “good” lettering artists don’t want to talk about)
- An interactive instructor.
Do you have tips for left-handed letterers?
Absolutely! I have tips that I’ve developed through my own practice and things that I’ve learned from my left-handed colleagues.
What if I don’t improve?
I mean I can’t guarantee anything, but with over two hours of video, 75+ practice pages, and two instructor critiques, you’re GOING to improve! If after two personalized critiques and going through the FULL course, you don’t feel like you’ve improved or we can’t see any improvement, I’m going to give you your money back!
What bonuses are you offering?
I’ve added a bonus of TWO critiques. Meaning you have to chances for me to personally look at your work, tell you what I like and what you need a little work on, and then you have the chance to show me AGAIN to make sure we’ve tackled the problem. You can also ask me any questions about my critique or questions that you just might have otherwise. How many online art classes give you critiques?
