Hi! My name is Sam.

I'm a recent graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I studied screenwriting, comics, and animation. I'm an aspiring animator, author, and teacher.

I have experience with many methods of animation, including traditional, stop-motion, and computer (AfterEffects, Photoshop, some Flash and Maya). I have experience writing feature-length and short-form screenplays. I've studied storyboarding and shot composition. I have taken numerous art history courses, especially in the area of comics and graphic novels. Before art school, I spent two years as an English Lit and Writing major, so I have knowledge of the history of English literature, grammar, and prose writing.

I've worked as an editing intern for a major publishing company as well as a professional comic artist for SAIC.

I'm friendly, hard-working, and am constantly learning. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to meet new people and help them reach their potential.

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.

Drawing

I trained at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, where I got my BFA in Animation. I work primarily as an independent comic artist, drawing on my storyboarding and screenwriting background in order to tell what I hope to be compelling but lighthearted stories. My work is mostly digital, but I also watercolor and pen and ink when the work calls for it. My work is heavily inspired by classic newspaper comics such as Popeye and Mickey Mouse. My favorite part of the process is character design.
