I believe that anyone with a genuine interest in storytelling can effectively express and communicate their ideas, regardless of their drawing skill level. My lessons show you how. I have worked as a published cartoonist since 1989. My work has been published by HarperCollins, 9-1-1 Magazine, the Directors Guild of America, the International Television Association, and AmeriCorps in addition to two published collections of original cartoons. In 1992, I received a certificate of completed studies from the London Cartoon Centre. Since then I have taught cartoon storytelling to kids, teens and adults at Anne Arundel Community College, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, and Roland Park Country School. As an Artist-in-Residence at Smith Farm for the Healing Arts in Washington, DC, I introduced cancer patients to the cathartic power of autobiographical storytelling in the graphic novel form and helped them tell their story and express their feelings.

My lessons are designed to help students develop their own story and characters, effectively communicate an original idea, and develop personal expression. Lessons cover scriptwriting and story breakdown, character design, page layout and more. These lessons will show you how to become a great observer of life and of the characters who inhabit your everyday life.

Very patient and sincere Steven F. has been very consistent and professional. He has never canceled an appt. even in bad weather and also followed up to confirm all appointments; giving up to date contact information.
