I have spent the past 35 years as a working artist, with a main focus on graphic design, illustration, cartooning and PhotoShop work. I am also deeply versed in mythology and folk lore, an accomplished musician and for the past few years, a blogger for alternative education.

Ten years ago, along with my wife and a host of other parents, we started a school in NYC. As parent/founder, I have worked very closely with the staff and students at the school. I have conducted volunteer classes on a semi regular basis, and make it a point to know as many of the students personally as I can (the student body is a consistent 60 children).

My approach as a tutor is a non-coercive approach where the student's inclinations will direct the instruction. We can work together, having a free exchange of ideas, techniques, that hopefully the student can integrate into their understanding, creating a more holistic approach to learning about something they love. The main idea is to create an environment of freedom so that the student can make their own discoveries.

For software training, I assess the student's needs and work toward creating projects that will facilitate practice and quicker understanding on the practical use of the software.

Bruce’s subjects

Adobe Illustrator

I have produced logos, maps, flyers and charts using Adobe Illustrator for over 20 years. I can show you how to customize fonts, make quick clip art from found images and produce images within the limits of your imagination. Illustrator can be used to create designs that are simple or complex. I can accompany you into this complex but fun program.

Adobe InDesign

My professional work for Doylestown Hospital, Continuum Inc and Beth Israel Hospital is accomplished on a daily basis using Adobe InDesign CS5. If you have something you want to accomplish, and do not know how to do it, I can guide you through the process.

Adobe Photoshop

My digital collage work has been in shows around the world. I am also called upon regularly to retouch photographs and create unusual image editing solutions.


I have had a 40 year career working as an illustrator and graphic designer, and I draw constantly. I am deeply connected to the process of working from the subconscious while being very aware of traditional approaches, like those of the old masters. I can guide students in any direction that appeals to them.

Graphic Design

I have been and continue to be a working professional for the past 35 years. I have worked with major ad agencies, corporations, educational and healthcare institutions and mid sized businesses to produce brochures, advertising, billboards, logos, posters, web banners, retouching and any other graphic needs a client may propose. I am fully versed in all the software necessary to execute this work with strong emphasis on InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
