Introducing: TutorMill –– the new way to study illustration ––

It is official!

A completely new way for aspiring artists to study illustration, online illustration mentoring course TutorMill has just launched.

It is run by the same people who makes Drawger and Illoz happen, and the idea was conceived by illustrators and good friends: Gary Taxali and Thomas Fuchs.

We love teaching, but it is limited to a few classes in the cities we live in, and occasional school visits and workshops outside. Now with TutorMill, students can be living anywhere in the world to study with us. You choose a class you are interested, two instructors you like, and whether you want 3 week quick course, or 6 week long-duration course.

My former studio-mate and best friend Marcos Chin is also on TutorMill. (and we are already picked to teach a student together.)

TutorMill soft-launched this week, and students already started enrolling. I had conversations with some of my students, and having a great feeling on starting the courses.
