and join me in my 8-week 'Picture Book Illustration e-Course', or my 'Animal Character Design' 4-week course starting October 18, 2021.
"The Picture Book Illustration e-Course was an amazing experience. Everything was helpful and relevant. The online atmosphere was so positive for beginners and advanced alike ... as a beginner, I never felt looked down on or less important. Critique was given in a positive, affirming way. This course was one of the highlights of my year."
"Because I hadn't illustrated a picture book before, I wanted a chance to work on a manuscript and to find out my strengths and what I could improve on. The Picture Book Illustration e-Course gave me a better understanding of visual story telling and added to my portfolio."
"As a self-publisher, I’ve found the course has meant that the quality of my work has jumped significantly. It’s made the investment of time and money extremely worthwhile."
I am passionate about picture books stories and the characters that help tell them. I LOVE teaching and sharing EVERYTHING that I've learnt over the past 20-years so that you can fast-track your illustration journey.
Work when and where you like. With lifetime access, revisit the course content as many times as you like.
Workbooks that work hand-in-hand with the video lessons, offering resources, top-tips, tasks and projects.
Online communities that offer the support and guidance to keep you on track while you develop your projects.
"Nina is genuinely invested in each student’s growth. I loved the breadth of the class and found the lessons to be filled with valuable content. The Picture Book Illustration e-Course relit my passion and confidence for drawing and storytelling. I am truly grateful for the care, time and expertise that went into this course. "
"Before this course, I didn’t know how to consistently sustain a character image from one scene or action to the next — that was one of the things that frightened me most about venturing into children’s illustration — but Nina taught us how to … quickly and consistently develop our characters in different scenes and actions without losing their original character design, proportions, or personality. This has been a career-changing class for me, not only in the area of children’s illustration, but in all areas of my art."
