This course was hugely useful. I was in a rut and unhappy with the style of recent work I'd been doing. After completing this course and following Lee's recommendations, I got excited about recreating the techniques of illustrators I'd always admired, and in short order I was making images that really felt true to my aesthetic. It re-energized my work and my spirit.

I did not find what I was looking for here. I'm pretty set in my style, but I'm lacking in colors that define my style further. Nonetheless, the information here was valid and helpful to those that are lost in how they want to create their creations.

I've always struggled with my style, I never felt it had arrived at a readily recognizable phase. I graduated with a B.A. in art from a liberal arts school, even took a course at Parsons years ago in the city. But never did any of my art course studies cover what I and I believe other art students were thinking, how does one arrive at their own authentic style? More importantly this course covers the thinking process of the instructor and his valuable technique at developing his own lyrical illustration style; and with the added bonus of Sirs Will Terry and Jake Parker discussing with Lee exercises on mentally processing an assignment as well as physical drawing exercises they use to keep their signature style flexible, and fresh. I feel SVS offers unique courses unlike any other venue.

How long have I been avoiding doing the art I want to do because I was afraid to copy someone else's style? This is by far the most useful art lecture I have ever sat through. Definitely a topic not discussed enough.

Very helpful and great insight into the mysteries of style. Loved the practical aspect and the "peek behind the curtain" aspect of historical and contemporary artists. Thanks for this lesson.

This was such an amazing course and I can honestly say that I've taken away so many excellent points from it! For any artists who feel like they are in an artistic rut, or who are just trying to really figure out their style, I HIGHLY recommend this course!

I loved this class! I have been struggling for some time to know what direction to go in terms of my style and now I feel like I finally have a starting point. Thank you!!

Excellent presentation and discussion from Lee White, Will Terry and Jake Parker about finding your style. No mishmash or or the usual annoying "your style will find you" here. Lee White gives practical advice and shows some real analysis of how he and some other artists got their styles. A must watch.

Lee White did a great job of expressing how to craft your style. I enjoyed the lecture and look forward to the assignment.

I was confused about how to improve myself to reach my goal in the right way, and this really helped.

Lots of food for thought! I also really like his assignment on collecting artwork that you love and doing a process with it- very motivating
