Drawing Expert

 Hi, my name is Geoff and I'm a professional illustrator.

From a young age I have had a passion for drawing, inspired by cartoons, comics and the animal world. I taught myself to draw, and now I want to teach you!

Whether you want to draw for fun, or professionally, I want your drawing experience to be as easy as possible. I do this by pointing out simple observations that most students miss, and by sharing lessons from my 27 years of drawing experience.

I'll give you tips I learned when studying a Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, Australia and knowledge I gained while working professionally in animation and illustration.
