Elizabeth Sullivan
I loved this class! Lisa expresses herself so well and her style and method is inspiring for new and established artists alike. I tend to over-work my illustrations so this was excellent in helping me to see shapes and compose an illustration in a more simple form, that is both pleasing on the eye and harmoniously balanced. Highly recommend this class!

After watching these videos, I found myself really engaged in the line drawing process. My drawings and lettering are still very amateurish, but I found that I enjoy visualizing what my drawing will look like, if only in a very basic way, and then getting started to see where it will take me. The fun part is embellishing it! Thank you for a wonderful class, Lisa!
