About Gideon

Greetings,

My name is Gideon E. and I am a Comic Book Artist. In the span of the 22 years I've spent here on earth, I've always shared a love for all things art. You may just say - it is my super power. Unfortunately in college, super powers are no match to meeting rent... Jokes aside, I study at several colleges, most notably at San Jose State University. Where I currently dual major in Illustration and Animation with a minor in Communications Studies. However, when I'm not at school, you'll find meat my startup company, tailored to publishing comic books from a variety of genres and for all ages, where we have been recognized by notable publishers such as Marvel, DC Comics, Image and ActionLab (Canada) for our in-work title.

Although this is an art class, students will apply Math, English and Science skills as they work through my curriculum with plenty of fun of course! I am dedicated to the artistic medium and the principal of learning. Your child will learn the same expertise and knowledge my mentors have passed to me and have developed myself. Knowledge and skills they can take anywhere in life!

I have experience with Cartooning, Figure Drawing, Painting, Art History, Color Theory and Portfolio Building.

If you want to learn about me, contact me for more information.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am a self taught artist and only since I began college at San Jose State, San Joaquin Delta College and Evergreen College did I began learning proper. Art has always been my language as a person. That said, I understand how to draw realistic human forms and how to break those forms into fundamental shapes for example. I understand how to draw objects either from memory and from reference. I can render/illustrate images by looking at them and can describe art with scholar clarity. I know how to work with my shadows, dark to lights and the significance of knowing them to portray convincing forms on paper. my main style is cartooning or "western art style" some say I have an almost Disney or Pixar style.

Depending on the student, the way I may teach will be subjective as every student is different.
for example to teach a student how to draw a living room. I would first teach them shapes, that the room is a cube. Then from there I will show what a vanishing point is or a point of perspective the "eyes" should looking at. whether its from above the room or from the floor its all relative. afterwords we'll learn how to draw the respective acoustics such as the couch or decorations in the room and how those things most be relative to the perspective point of the room otherwise it'll look off. As you can see it can get quite heady in writing but when I work with the student I will work with them step by step.

Painting

Despite being a illustrator my qualifications render in other avenues of the artistic medium such as painting. Have excellent sense of proportion, form, detail, and functionality.Extensive knowledge of colour theory & composition. Knowledge of European and contemporary concepts. Ability to work in different styles and genres: abstract, expressionism, realism and mix media. Exceptional attention to detail. Can clearly explain artistic concepts to a non-technical audience sans children or adults.
