    RC’s teaching methods are fantastic. Now I want to use the pen tool instead of shying away from it. It’s obvious that he really knows his stuff, Thanks RC. These days it’s not easy to get value for money but that’s exactly what you get with Kelby training, do your self a favour and check it out. —- Yes, please post my feedback
