Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.

I have been an artist for over 20 years and teaching it at the college level for eight years. I have used it and taught it for quite the range of design media. From Graphic Design, Motion Graphics, and Game Art to Image Manipulation, Concept Art and Abstract Deconstruction.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

Cartooning is pure fun! In my class we will take a trip through the world of imagination as we learn basic cartooning skills like line quality, seeing beyond reality, and basic anatomy of both humans and animals.

Through the process of our class my goal is to give you a solid foundation of good technique, an active imagination, and a basic understanding of how real life impacts how our imagination works. The projects in this class will range from abstract art to more representational to give you a chance to really see like a cartoonist. In addition I'll also take some class time to talk about comics, learning and growing your own style, and other such topics.
