... And registration is open!…

"If you're looking to really dig deep and learn about design from the inside out, learning how to make the implausible plausible, then you have found your teacher. From former student Janya Pavlin:

"Alex’s class was absolutely wonderful and I learned an incredible amount from him! Rarely is an instructor with so much knowledge so generous with their time, knowledge, and technical skills. He took a personal interest in everyone’s project and his guidance made all the difference not only in our final work but our overall skill level as artists. I would recommend Alex’s class not only because of the tools he shares in thinking about art but the real impact it makes in creating that art! "

Come in and and challenge yourself to be the best you can be. Take the first step into a better tomorrow. Secure your spot today and flame the creativity of your imagination through education.…

Gah! I just realized I did not have your journal entries checked off. I've been enjoying your artwork for Birrin. It has been immensely enjoyable watching it all take form. Just bummed I've missed your journals. Is it possible to get a rough estimate on where things are right now just so I can freshen up??

Also, I cannot remember if you had said previously that you will eventually have it printed into book form at some point.

The birrin are just fantastic!  I haven't gotten to the journals yet so hopefully I am not asking redundant questions, but I have a few.

1.  Are the birrin sexually dimorphic?

2.  Can the twist their hands/fingers?  The look like they might  be like horses and lack that range of motion.

3.  Have they domesticated any animals?

4.  Do they use chairs, or do they just use pillows as seen in the picture of the smoking parlor?
