"You are honestly the best out there, and I'm so glad I have you as a mentor. I wouldn't get the quality of education anywhere else, and the improvements I have made thanks to you in only 5 months of mentoring are insane. Whereas I believe most instructors just look at students work and read off a flowchart on what 99%-of-students-screw-up-most-of-the-time, and then just use that as way for students to improve, you actually truly look at what student is struggling in and you point out exactly what they need to do. There was a time when I wanted to draw, but I never progressed. With you as a mentor I actually managed to make progress, a lot of progress, something I thought would be impossible."

"Mike Mattesi's FORCE Drawing classes really prepared me for the drawing needs of the animation industry and helped give me the competitive edge to transition from a student to a professional. Today I'm a Co-Executive Producer of Cartoon Network's acclaimed Shorts/Development Department and I've had the good fortune of having worked on several high profile shows such as SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS and REGULAR SHOW. If you have the opportunity to, I highly recommend taking Mike's classes.  "

"I want to give you a HUGE thanks to yesterday's lecture.. it was really wonderful & the animators received a lot of benefit from it.  I feel like you really taught us a lot of great techniques, and personally I really got a sense of what I could do to help our poses read much stronger.  I especially liked the discussions on force (AWESOME!) and watching you draw over our poses to see what your thought process was.  It was incredibly inspiring to see your work, I found myself often glancing over at your quick drawing and going "oh crap!" and then working harder to discover the lines I wanted.  I really feel like the animators progressed quite a bit yesterday, even those of us who aren't the best at illustration. :) Oh, and just so you know.. the animators were already asking when you'd be back for more. :)
Thanks so much for putting so much thought and energy into the class, I really appreciate it!"
