ArtCenter alum and professor, author of Pardon my Dust, Peter Han is known for finding creative kinks and twisting them, creating inevitable and speedy learning curve transitions of students who are afraid of sketching. I was one such student who considerably improved and overcame my fear for sketching to quite an extent.
The skill I had as a child disappeared somewhere during my intensive schooling years. He helped me get them back. I am forever grateful. Here is my sketchbook, that I created for him, as part of the curriculum.
