I got feedback on my first WOD which is the Dragon Hunter portfolio cycle. It occurred to me that this was my first ever real feedback on anything industry-related. I’ve struggled for years to get the right education that will get me to where I want to be but ARTWOD has made it possible. It makes me feel like I am finally moving forward and not stuck on a treadmill. So I wanted to say, Thank you to Antonio and thank you for creating ARTWOD. Best art school ever! <3



I’ve been with ArtWod for over two years now, and it is safe to say that it fundamentally changed how I approach design for the better. The cycles push you out of your comfort zone and expand your visual library. Then, after a while, you make that way of learning your own, enabling you to break down and understand any topic of your choosing. Even though I have found a job in the industry now, I still enjoy a cycle once in a while or hop in the lounge to have a chat.
