About Neal

For the last ten years I have taught commercial illustration, cartooning and sequential art workshops for both children and adults at several local institutions including: California State University, Los Angeles, UCLA Extension, Pasadena City College Extended Learning, Santa Monica City College Continuing Education, Sherman Oaks Elementary and the Japanese American National Museum. As a freelance artist and writer I've done work for a variety of book publishers, advertising agencies, magazines and comic book companies, doing everything from book illustration and gag panels to adventure/superhero-style sequential art; a Google search of my name will show my work that's currently on the market.

I am currently teaching several six-session workshops for a Continuing Education Department, which includes "How to Create Comics and Graphic Novels" I and II, "Basic Inking for Comics and Cartoons" and Cartooning for Fun and Profit." I also have a weekly cartoon.

I have over twenty years experience as a professional artist (so I have very good technical skills) and I have a lot of enthusiasm for teaching.
