"My son said this was the best online class he has taken (and he has taken a lot this past year). He learned concrete cartooning skills and had fun doing it. Todd was a great teacher and kept him engaged and making progress."
Elizabeth Kensington, CA BEG Kids Comic Workshop (Online)
I really appreciated Todd's approach with my 10-year-old son and his friend. He spoke to them like adults, teaching them the fundamentals, giving them solid feedback on their comics and providing examples from his own real-world experience. My son had this to say: "I really liked this comic class because Mr. Todd showed us very specifically each thing and let us try it on our own!"

My 11 year old son signed up for the online Beginner Kids Comic Workshop. It was terrific! The online process was seamless, as both Todd and my son could easily communicate and show each other their drawings throughout class. My son loved the style of comic drawing he learned, and feels more confident in his drawing abilities. Todd was encouraging, fun and a real expert. We are signing my son up for the advanced class and look forward to seeing him progress. I strongly recommend Todd’s classes!

My son loves the online one-on-one format — he says he can really concentrate and that Todd really teaches you how to do stuff! I love that a rural kid can have access to this level of art/design/story instruction – and I’ve seen some real “a-ha” moments as my son starts to realize the details of the craft.
Susan Westmoreland, NH BEG Kids Comic Workshop
My son loved Todd's online character design class. It was so convenient for him to take the class at home. After each class, he was filled with confidence and excitement about his drawings.
From son: "I learned a lot in Mr. Todd's character design class. He explained everything really clearly, and we did a lot of drawing activities together. I feel like my comic drawing skills really improved from this class, and I'm already excited about taking another class with Mr. Todd."
Karen Gardner, MA Character Design (Online Class)
We took Todd's comic book class online and it quickly became our son's favorite day of the week. Todd gave him tools that he could use instantly and helped turn his interest into technique. Todd's skill sets in illustration, along with his easy manner and good eye, made each session a rich experience that has motivated our son to get to work!
Scott Shawnee, Kansas
My son is obsessed with comics: reading, writing, and drawing. Working with Todd helped him understand the mechanics of creation, from planning to final product, and he is churning out stories now. We absolutely recommend Todd's class and plan to do another!
Amanda Minneapolis, MN
Todd impressed us from his first lesson with our son. His lessons are content-rich and well organized. My son's knowledge of the process of cartooning has grown considerably under Todd's guidance. I would highly recommend Todd to anyone interested in developing their cartooning skills.
Mike Burlington, Vermont Advanced Kids Comic Workshop (Online Class)
My 13 year old son really enjoyed Todd's online Character Design Class. This was the first formal drawing class he has done and found the class extremely helpful for building his drawing skills and supporting his growing interest in drawing. The online format was perfect. Todd explained concepts very clearly and provided the foundational skills of drawing that would apply to any type of art. My son has seen improvements in his drawing ability already and we are planning to continue with additional online classes.
Sonya Bethesda, MD Character Design (Online Class)
"Todd's Junior class online was great! Very engaging and straight to the interesting material. It was a very useful and compact course perfect for the young budding artist. I was amazed by how much was fit into just two 45 min sessions - basics of comic drawing, character design, and narrative structure. My daughter also appreciated the game-ification aspect! Todd also has a very personable style with young students. We look forward to taking more. Thanks Todd!"
