I teamed up with Seoul/South Korea based CLASS101 to develop and host a master class on stylized character and creature design. Advance reservation/supporting the class will soon become available, including detailed information about the curriculum. I will give you a shout here as soon as it's out and live. Sincerely thanks to CLASS101 for the fab support.
