I have thoroughly enjoyed my Illustrator Course thank you! I have now attended 4 Adobe courses, three with Jay, and have come away with a solid foundation, all of which has helped me achieve the design of my new book, additional marketing and advertising products and tools for my new website.

Great refresher with Cressida. She paces the course well for all skill levels and encourages questions and makes the group feel comfortable to ask anything. Has a broad knowledge range and above all made the course really enjoyable!
