"Besides his wealth of knowledge, his exceptional talent and a vast range of experience and skills, Ian is also committed to humanitarian activities and is actively engaged in community and charitable work. This says much for his character and personality.
As a retired Design School head myself, and having employed and worked with many lecturers, tutors, researchers etc over the last 32 years I would certainly recognize the rare combination of skills and knowledge that Ian would be able to contribute at any level."
Tony Russell - retired Head of college, Natal South Africa
"I have known Ian for well over 15 years, having worked with him on both 2D and 3D projects in the media industry. As a traditional Graphic Artist and Illustrator who had transitioned from creating artwork 'by hand' to computer generated graphics, I hadn't yet used any 3D software. Ian helped me to learn Cinema 4D and Poser, and his teaching style was both inspiring and nurturing.
Ian has a superior knowledge of design and illustration. He constantly keeps up-to-date with software programme updates and learning new ones. His technical ability is second to none, and I would highly recommend Ian as a tutor to anyone wanting to improve their technical skills, learning from a master. I wouldn't be where I am today without Ian's expert advice and encouragement."
