Although it wasnt what I had expected, ( for some reason I thought this was a tutorial on how to create a voiceover video while youre drawing) But This was a very good class. And I learned some useful information for my future projects. Ira is a good narrator and makes his points clear and concise. He shows how to share things that happen in our everyday lives by translating that into a story using our art. Thank you Ira!

Incredibly concise, to the point and effective.
very well structured introduction with a lively narration that makes you want to start right away with drawing comics.
