Tony in his own words:
I've been an Illustrator user for 25 years and have authored many courses for LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) helping many people get started with Illustrator and develop their skills. I have over 376,000 active learners on my "Illustrator Essentials" courses and 1.7 million active learners across all of my courses. I've been an illustrator and designer for almost 40 years and have worked with Adobe for many years, on staff as well as a contractor. 🙂
My YouTube channel has a weekly Ai stream that usually goes out on a Friday ( at 12 PM UK time). It demonstrates drawing techniques in Adobe Illustrator.

Jack in her own words:
I am Jack, a senior UI/UX designer in Cleveland, Ohio fueled by coffee and donuts. I started out as a medical illustrator, spent some time as an animator, and eventually landed in UI/UX design. I like to think of myself as a visual problem solver above all other titles. The 10 years of experience I have in medical illustration and educational publishing informs the decisions I make as a UI/UX designer, by understanding how people learn. As much as I love solving design problems, I also love weaving stories into my designs through animation and illustration. My tools of choice are the Adobe apps on my desktop and iPad, a pencil, paper, and my brain. I also enjoy experimenting with animation, specifically CSS animations using art from Illustrator. My degree is a BFA in Biomedical Art, which means I studied art, design, and animation, as well as things like human biology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, genetics, and population biology. My unique skills and experience have helped me mentor other creatives both through live streaming on Behance, and providing feedback and help for the Adobe Illustrator Creative Challenges. Additionally, I’m a part of a small group of incredible individuals called the Art Squad, which organizes weekly virtual meetups and occasional collaborative projects together.
