Mitch is the founder of Pencil Kings an online training site that teaches illustration and drawing techniques – his background comes from working in film and games for various big name clients in Canada and the United States and China.

At a turning point in Mitches life, he decided to risk everything and take action, creating his own business and designing his own lifestyle that would allow him total freedom to travel the world and live the life that he wanted to live, while also running his own business completely virtual – online, giving artists the tools and knowledge to build their career and follow their passions in traditional art and drawing.

Mitch’s story is both inspirational, as well as instructional, as an amazing case study on how you can take the initiative and get out of your comfort zone, take some calculated risks and build the lifestyle that YOU want to live, doing both the things you love but also having total freedom in how you do it!
