"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."

Jenny Peterson

"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."

Amy Calautti

"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."

"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. "

Sarah Davies

"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."
