About Gene

From my experience working on such TV series as The Smurfs, Superfriends, Liquid Television, and Gumby, I learned how to draw cartoons quickly and simply. I show you how to make characters out of simple shapes, how to give them expression and how to make them move. I can show you how to make a comic strip or an animated cartoon. I can tutor you at your house or via Skype.

I love questions. If you ask my what time it is, I'll tell you how to make a watch. I have taught people of all ages and I am experienced in teaching people with special needs. I started working in animation in 1978. I also started teaching in 1978. As I learned new techniques, I loved passing it on to others. And now I can pass it on to you.

Looking forward to teaching you,
Gene
