Hey, traditional and CGI animators!

Could your artwork use that extra push?

Animation

Workshop

I’ve crafted a new private online workshop, where I’ll personally teach advanced animation techniques to a select handful of students at time (4 students per class).  Over a six week mentorship, I will offer pointers, technical advice, and most importantly, personalized feedback.  I want to harness my decades of experience in the animation industry to help push you to the next level!

The class consists of weekly 2-hour online meetings via Google Hangouts over a 6 week period.

Meet in person!  Each term, a meet and greet will be arranged for local students to get together for coffee to meet each other and myself!

Storyboard Artist (The Simpsons)

Larry is a great guy.  Not only is he fun to hang out with, but he knows his stuff. It wasn't until I took his animation class that animating walks became crystal clear to me.  He managed to break them down so well, that they finally clicked. On top of that, he was also able to help me improve my drawings. He pointed out some bad habits I'd picked up that were making my drawings stiff. I'm glad I took his class.
