Digital Arts + Design Master Class Now Available

Digital Arts and Design Master Class DVD Cover

Do you want to improve your digital art designs?  As a designer you have a split second to attract someone to your product, as it is competing with so many others.  Or maybe this is for internal use such as business presentations? And you want people to buy into your ideas.  Or maybe you just really enjoy digital arts as hobby and want to make the best of that?  This course can help you with that and more! While I use open source software (GIMP, Inkscape and Scribus) in the tutorials, this course is easily interchangeable with commercial software such as Adobe PS, AI, ID, and PRE as many of the workflows are nearly identical.  I have over 30 years of experience in design and I am sharing this with you. This course was over six months in the making and it is now available!  This is a must course for beginners through advanced. Check out this course description HD video.
