Hello, my name is Ian, and I am a freelance illustrator living in Columbia, MD. I recently graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art and have gained real world experience in my field. I have excellent Photoshop skills and a general knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. I am a classically trained illustrator who enjoys working in charcoal, graphite, gouache, and digital mediums. I would love to share my skills and experience, so please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Illustrator

I have experience using Illustrator in school, in a professional setting, and in my personal work. I have found Illustrator to be useful in graphic design and logo design, and would love to share my skills with you.

Adobe InDesign

I have gained experience using InDesign for school assignments during my time at the Maryland Institute College of Art. I have also gained professional experience during my internship and part-time position with A Bright Idea, a local graphic designing and branding firm in Bel Air, MD. In my experience I have found InDesign to be a great program for organizing advertisements and resumes, as well as sequential documents such as brochures, and comics.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is my area of expertise. I work primarily in photoshop creating digital paintings and illustrations with my bamboo tablet. I also have experience scanning high quality images and photos, editing and re-touching photos, and preparing files for print. Photoshop can be used for many other tasks and I would love to show you how to utilize this program.

Drawing

It is important for every artist to have strong drawing skills, especially in the field of illustration. This means being able to understand and communicate perspective, value, anatomy, and proportion successfully in a drawing. I have spent years studying these elements and practicing these skills by drawing from life and imagination in a classroom setting, and in my free time. I am comfortable working in charcoal, graphite, ink, and digital mediums, and I would love to share these skills with you.

Painting

I have years of experience using oils, gouache, water color, and acrylic paints. Primarily I work digitally, but I am a classically trained illustrator. I have picked up many techniques from each method, and would love to share my skills in areas such as preparing a canvas, mixing color, and setting up compositions. I have been painting since high school, and have continued studying at Howard Community College and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
