Gene was fun and his technique was easy to follow. I came to the event only knowing how to draw basic geometry shapes and came out drawing better than 99% of people. That's an amazing achievement.




Gene was amazing. He was genuine and down to earth, very skilled, and definitely brought his sense of humor to the class. Myself, like many others, came with no experience in drawing. We left with many different characters and some uplifting words that brought a smile to everyone's faces. His caricatures of everyone were therapeutic to watch, and he is great at what he does. Highly recommend this class, if not to just listen to his wonderful rants.

Gene was funny and engaging. We learnt how to cartoon a face and some basics of caricature. We loved the caricatures he made of us.
