About Rodney

I'm an illustrator with a passion for super heroes, ancient myths and video games. I have a bachelor's degree in Sequential Art from Savannah College of Art and Design but I'm always looking to improve my artistic skill set and try something new. Sometimes things work and sometimes they don't but that journey is what I love about art.

My work is a reflection of my love for the modern mythology of comic books, movies, animation and video games and the characters that exist in those worlds. They speak to that inner hero we have in us all that wants to save the day.

I teach art classes at Kalabash School of Music and the Arts in La Jolla, CA mostly focused on comic book drawing and inking. The basics of general art concepts such as line, shape, form and perspective are also explored in my classes as well. The students I teach are able to draw known characters or create their own and bring them to life on the page.

As a teacher I am always very patient and I always make sure to cover the basics while at the same time encouraging my students to push their boundaries and explore something new.

I'm also a freelance artist specializing in comic book, cartooning, story-boarding and illustration. The bulk of my work consists of art commissions from individuals and companies. I also exhibit at comic book and art conventions nationwide throughout the year.
Collectively my skillset includes life drawing, illustration, penciling, inking, marker rendering and adobe suite (mainly Photoshop)

Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions.
