Nice, but very limited lessons

The presentation quality is good and presented at a nice pace. However, the six lessons here at this time are very basic and limited.

For example, I was a bit puzzled by the lesson on how to create a cardboard mug mock-up. There wasn't any lessons explaining what to do with it. I assume there's further lessons on applying graphic design to mugs, which aren't included here. I'd be nice to have more lessons included here. I'd love to see more.

Terrible

This was too simple, it was horrible. A disgrace to art. In other words... A 12 year old could do it. Boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
