Pitsirilos says: “Don’t give up. I’ve been told so many times ‘No, no, no’ in my career. ‘You’ll never be able to do this.’ Keep believing in yourself. If it’s not working out and not making you happy, find another way to do it”

Walker says: “I find Comics Experience more relaxed than art school. It’s that safe space. In Introduction to Coloring, Dean White was a guest… He taught me I could do things painterly, didn’t have to do cell shading. It helped me find my coloring style.”

Bowland says: “You still get that feedback whenever you need it (taking online classes). I didn’t miss anything at all — and I’m in another country. I wouldn’t change a minute of it. I preferred it to going to a real art school. I wouldn’t be where I’m at without it.

Walker says: “It’s been good for me and my career… I tried writing before, but couldn’t figure out how to get the story out. Biggest light bulb that went off in the class was breaking it down into steps. I wasn’t focused on the minutia. It was baby steps, it was perfect.”
