Rich Graysonn | Illustrator Designer

4.5/5 Instructor Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

 

Aside from being an artist for as long as he can remember, Rich Graysonn started offering a few tutorials on Youtube. Little did he know that by teaching people the fundamentals of art and anatomy he'd begin a new dimension to my career. Being a working freelance illustrator with a youtube channel is hard work, and he wouldn't change a thing. He steadily expanded his work from clients who needed branding to doing work on indie games and apps. He enjoys helping artists and non-artists achieve that next level. The road to artistic expression and freedom is paved with hard work and dedication. There are setbacks and monsters to slay, but the rewards are great.

4.4/5 Instructor Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

 

Born in Los Angeles, California, in the middle of the last century, Brian Jackson has always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five, some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, he managed to retire early and begin his next career as a self-published author. His latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution online. His goal is to provide low-cost high-quality screen cast-based educational material focusing on his area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, he plans to expand his catalog to cover Webpage development and online video training course preparation.

4.5/5 Instructor Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

 

Aside from being an artist for as long as he can remember, Rich Graysonn started offering a few tutorials on Youtube. Little did he know that by teaching people the fundamentals of art and anatomy he'd begin a new dimension to my career. Being a working freelance illustrator with a youtube channel is hard work, and he wouldn't change a thing. He steadily expanded his work from clients who needed branding to doing work on indie games and apps. He enjoys helping artists and non-artists achieve that next level. The road to artistic expression and freedom is paved with hard work and dedication. There are setbacks and monsters to slay, but the rewards are great.
