But the people at the Artspace and the culture of the space are so welcoming. It was also lovely to work in such a beautiful building (that used to be a horse stable!). The workshops turned out to be an absolute joy. It's a bunch of anime fans meeting together and drawing anime (what was I scared of?).
I share some of my techniques for creating Anime characters, like using real people as inspiration (which makes great gifts for my students!).
If you're ever in the Raleigh - Durham area in North Carolina, feel free to follow the Artspace as I will be teaching more classes, including an introduction to digital anime art! ^_^
