DRAWING WORKSHOPS




We have had so many requests for workshops but our schedules don't allow it, so we're offering two here (note substantially increased prices) for groups that are interested.


Why are they so expensive?   Because even a 60 minute workshop, when you factor in prep time and travel means a full day out of our studios.

Andy & Veronica are professional working cartoonists, we are not inkers, we are the primary creative forces on a number of best-selling titles for publishers all over the world.  Our experience  includes working with Hollywood producers as well as the biggest Comic Book Publishers in the USA.   We have been invited special guests of events like San Diego Comic Con-- we know what we're talking about and if you use our resume to promote the event you'll have tremendous turnout and success.
