I have an Associate's Degree in Commercial Art from Vesper George School of Commercial Art. I have been in the Prepress/Printing Industry since before the advent of computers (with age comes wisdom:). I have been involved with all facets of the Graphic Arts industry both traditional and digital from inception to output. Drawing and painting, graphic design, knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign), Web development and design are just a few of the areas I am knowledgeable in.
I have been using Illustrator since version 88. I use it to further enhance my illustrations and character cartoons as well as designing ads and logos for various customers.
I have been using Photoshop and Indesign primarily in the prepress industry since the programs have been around. I have also used Photoshop in a design capacity as a freelance graphic artist and retouching photos in the fashion industry (if hired I will clarify the difference). I am experienced with InDesign mostly in the capacity of advertising and prepress as a layout tool, not in book creation. But I know more than enough to teach the basics on both.
I have been in the desktop publishing industry since before computers. I served my apprenticeship in the ITU at Typograhic House of Boston, where I also learned my craft on computers.
Since I have been actively involved and employed in a variety of Desktop Publishing areas, from working in various Print shops to being an Application Support Technician for Creo/Scitex. I am well versed in a variety of platforms: Mac, PC as well as Unix. I am experienced in many Desktop Publishing programs including (but not limited to) the latest Adobe Creative Suite.
I have an Associate's Degree in Commercial Art from Vesper George School of Commercial Art. I have been actively illustrating, drawing, and cartooning as a hobby and freelance artist for many years, and can produce samples upon request.
