Gingher Leyendecker: Hands down, one of the best instructors I've ever had. If you want to learn to draw, especially the human form, enroll in one of her Life Drawing Classes at MCC. See examples of my class work here: Life Drawing.

Drawing Dynamics: An instructional DVD on Charcoal Drawing featuring Mesa Community College instructor Gingher Leyendecker. The quality of the DVD is a very low (audio quality and camera work) but the teaching is excellent.

Artists

Frank Frazetta: THE late and great, iconic fantasy artist! Amazing!

Sebastian Krüger: A Master at capturing the essence of a person in caricatured drawings and paintings. Most famous perhaps for his humorous takes on members of the Rolling Stones.

Sam Jinks: A "not safe for work" or for folks under 18 Australian Edge interview with Melbourne artist Sam Jinks who creates hyper-realistic silicon sculptures. A must see...but not for the faint of heart.

Cynthia Peterson: MCC instructor and fine artist. Cyndie has a number of her paintings in galleries at this site. Recommended viewing.

r crumb: Irreverent, abrasive, pornographic?, self portrayed sex maniac...underground comic artist known widely for Fritz The Cat, the "Keep On Truckin" guy, Janis Joplin's album art, and Crumb (the movie). All of which he claims to loath. Only for those not easily offended
