Adobe Illustrator

I began using Adobe Illustrator more than 15 years ago, so, I'm very familiar with the interface, tools, and many of the shortcuts you can use to make your workflow a more efficient experience. The program has offered me the opportunity to do countless designs and manipulate traditional illustrations to fit the needs of many clients.

Drawing

B.A. Degree in Advertising Art from Prairie View A&M University (1991)
Associates Degree in Layout and Production Art ( 1993 )
Masters of Illustration from the Academy of Arts / San Francisco / online ( Present )

I've been a freelance Illustrator for over fifteen years now and I've worn many creative hats ( Art Teacher, Graphic Artist, Production Assistant, Comic book Artist, Concept Artist, Editorial Cartoonist and Prop Designer etc. )
My approach to this course is a foundation of lessons designed for people who are interested in developing their drawing technique and artistic abilities.
Focus is placed on theory and practice. This engages a better stimulating learning experience on your development as an artist. Strong attention on drawing assignments is given rather than on quizzes and while there is a testing component, it is simply meant to help you (the student) bind your understanding of the lessons and allow you to identify areas that you might want to spend more time on. When you submit your assignments, you will receive feedback on your work and development as an artist.

Getting Started: Art Resources, Drawing Tools and Creating your Workspace??

Fundamentals of Drawing: The way we think, Positive / Negative Space, Lines and Basic Shapes, Symmetry

??Beyond the Basics: Eye Level, Linear Perspective, 3-Dimensional Shapes, Still Life Drawing
