What’s the deal?
The Pencil To Pixel Studio is where I tutor you, one-on-one. It’s a private Slack channel, a chat room, where I post a new video lesson every single week that you complete and get feedback directly from me and your fellow students on.

It’s the perfect lettering school to ask questions, grow your skills, collaborate with other lettering artists, and get constant, endless inspiration and knowledge.

Important Info!

Lessons will commence on March 11th 2017, and a new module will be released weekly from then on.

While each module is being released you have the opportunity to give direct feedback, ask questions, and directly shape each lesson’s content and structure. It’s private access to steer the course and talk to the tutor!
