International award-winning illustrator Kyle Webster has a diverse portfolio including having drawn for The New Yorker, TIME, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Entertainment Weekly, Scholastic, ADOBE, Nike, IDEO and many other distinguished editorial, advertising, publishing and institutional clients.

Webster believes that a solid foundation in drawing is the key to success in effectively communicating any creative vision. In the classroom he constantly reinforces basic good drawing habits and practices, design and composition, as well as proven techniques for accurate drawing (perspective techniques, measuring, sighting and control) so that his students will have the power to sell their ideas with confidence after graduation.
