I started in animation in 1978 on Ralph Bashi's Lord of The Rings. I learned tricks working in Hollywood animation studios that they don't teach in art school. I make things simple and fun. I love seeing the look on people's faces when they thought they couldn't draw and find out they really can.

How To Draw Anime Characters

The cool thing about Japanese animation (anime) is that it bridges the gap between realism and cartoon. Learn how to draw your own anime character in my 90-minute online class, both funny and educational. I will show you how to draw an anime head from different angles (front, side, back, three-quarters, looking up and looking down). You'll learn the difference between a male anime face and a female anime face. We'll cover how to draw expressions on the face, and how to draw hair. As an animator myself, I'll show you all the simple tips and tricks that I learned in Hollywood. My animated feature Hell Toupee (streaming on has been described as an American anime. If you think you can't draw, you'll be surprised what a little framework will do for your art. Try my online class. And don't be afraid to ask questions, I love questions!
