Sad to see it go, for it was awesomeness itself. All month, we saw more people gravitate to that area of the Second Floor than usual. Every time I glanced over, people had slowed down to stand in front of each Sketch, or to sit and gaze tranquilly at the exhibit as a whole. Wherever 365Sketches:The Exhibit goes next, it will make people stop and really look the way they should!
John is a highly skilled and knowledgeable instructor, specifically in the fields of open source software and web tools for graphic design. He is engaging and responsive to his students’ needs while still enthusiastically and effectively imparting his knowledge and creative insights to the class.

I attended “Code Name Genesis” at the NJLA conference. I just wanted to send a note to say your presentation gave me lots of helpful information I had not heard of from other sources. Thank you for sharing your experiences!
Once again thanks so much for helping make our graphics workshop group the best attended workshop in the [user group’s] collection. Everyone knows that when you are there, they will be exposed to something new and worthwhile, by someone who is both competent and entertaining. Your efforts are always appreciated by our members.
I recently had the good fortune to take a course that John taught at the Princeton Public Library. I was impressed with John’s knowledge base and the way he facilitated the class. He was well-prepared with a comprehensive agenda, but was also flexible, allowing the class to be shaped by the needs and questions of the group. He did an excellent job of managing a class with individuals at different skill levels. I would highly recommend John as an instructor – Miriam Libove
After a recent presentation on Inkscape to the NJ Association of Library Assistants, I got this wonderful letter from an attendee.
“Hi Mr. LeMasney, I attended your 2:15-3:45 afternoon class yesterday on June 7, 2011. I couldn’t go without thanking you for your time and sharing the education with me as a student. The class will benefit me in the future. It was a lot to grasp but eventually I will learn it all. Your class gave me a good start…It felt great to sit in a classroom environment again being that I’ve been out of school for a while. This class encouraged me to continue my education. The reason why I’m writing you is because I had to leave your class a few minutes early due to transportation and I didn’t have the chance to thank you at the end of the class. You deserve all respect and the right to know that it was appreciated. Take care until the next NJALA Conference.”
Diane, who does the programming for a New York users group said this in response to a seminar on Inkscape:
“Thank you for the time and energy you invested to create a stupendous presentation. I wanted to let you know that you opened quite a few eyes at the meeting! They want more!”
Jane, a recent attendee to my talk on the Future of Mobile Technologies said:
“I would like to follow you around for a day and listen. I just got my masters and still think that following you around for a day would be the best 8 hours of education I could get.”
Alice Parfitt, a recent Inkscape workshop attendee said:
“In the next two weeks, I want to learn everything about Inkscape that you haven’t already taught us. When this Inkscape workshop is finished, I hope you will plan something similar for GIMP and other creative technologies. If I were still in library school…I would try to do an internship with you….Someone told me they took a class in photo editing with you at NJLA this year? I would like to hear more about this… Would you ever be interested in doing programs at OCL for staff and/or the public? I’ve learned a lot from you and am very impressed with your knowledge, philosophy, and teaching style. ”
In hearing that we were able to extend a series of workshops at Princeton Public Library on Inkscape from 4 weeks to five, attendee Beth Plankey said
“This is exactly what I was hoping for. I am delighted. I would gladly attend every Monday for the rest of my life! It may take that long to learn all that Inkscape can do. Thanks ever so much to all of you!”
A third attendee, Martha Otis, who was not able to make all the PPL sessions, remarked hopefully about future sessions:
“I am glad to have had an intro to this marvelous program by a patient and imaginative teacher. Sorry I’ll miss classes but grateful for what I learned. Keep me informed please.”
I was recently voted in as one of the most interesting NJ Librarians to hear present in an open internet survey, though I am not, in fact, a Librarian. Many people have mistaken my passion for Libraries as an actual MLS. (http://redlibcomic.blogspot.com/2010/08/winners-most-likelynj-librarians-survey.html)
Other quick comments from recent session feedback forms:
John was so organized, knowledgeable, over all just excellent.
Great information, especially from John. I liked how he was able to concisely explain the various technology tools that are available.
I had a lot of questions about technology that were answered during the session. I’m sure I’ll have to call the Technology office less often this fall now that I know how to post things on Blackboard, etc.
John was terrific! A great source and valuable resource!
