Eva

"At every career stage, graphic designers and illustrators must feel confident in their understanding of digital tools. I really enjoy making complex or frustrating concepts easy to understand. My goal is to save you time and effort...so  your creativity has room to grow."

Recent student feedback

5.0 stars This is my second class with Eva, and I must say that her knowledge of the software was once again impressive. She has an extensive understanding of every tool and function that the book lessons touched base on. I would take a third class with Eva in a heartbeat! She deserves a birthday bonus!Charlie Baldwin

4.9 stars Eva was wonderful. I was incredibly intimidated by Illustrator and by the time I left I felt like I had a great starting point at which to go home and practice my new skills. She made it accessible, fun, and a comfortable environment to ask questions in. I always felt like I had the right amount of attention when I needed it. Sarah Scanlon

5.0 stars Eva Sandor was a fantastic instructor. She was great at breaking down the material to a level that was easy to digest. I was extremely pleased with the course overall!! Devra Juraco

5.0 stars Honestly, this class was awesome. I have always wanted to learn more about Illustrator and have been frustrated that my creativity was limited by my understanding of the program. After taking this bootcamp class, I have an entirely new understanding of Illustrator and I'm excited to be able to put these skills to use in my job. Eva was the sweetest teacher and was always available to answer questions and show us real-world examples of projects and ways to use our new skills. I couldn't recommend this program more highly - very grateful to have had this opportunity. Looking forward to returning to take the Photoshop bootcamp class! Thanks! Joel Loera
