Loved the class! Pleasant and charismatic teacher, clean speech, plain explanation of the process. Brilliant! Can't wait to start working on my own comic strip.

Well explained and makes you want to jump to the drawing board (not on it) to start creating.

Honestly on the fence about recommending this class. The title and trailer were a bit misleading for me in that I thought the comic strip would revolve more around the song and lyrics, not a memorable event involving the song. Keith was humorous and engaging, and provided nice basics for laying out a 4-panel cartoon. I'll be The Prude, and just say that the innuendo in the demo comic (while initially funny) seemed a bit crass for a 30 minute lesson. It was nice to see him make mistakes and his methods of correction.
