My name is Tony Ross, owner and creator of and I am an animator and software trainer, and I also like to dabble in music, and creative writing.  

My specialty in software training, is taking complex applications, and breaking them down into simple steps that even a beginner, or novice can follow. With over a decade of experience, my tutorials have been featured on Creative Cow,, Toon Boom, GoMediazine, Infinite Skills, O’Reilly, and I am also a author.

In teaching, and in life, I try and follow this mantra…

Keep it simple, make it perfect; If you don't have the time to make it perfect, rethink the idea. - Tony Ross
