About DAVID

I have a Master's degree from the Art Center College of Design and have taught figure drawing at Art Center College of Design. I have been drawing and sketching from age six and there is nothing I enjoy more than drawing in public. I could not stop drawing in school, and drew all over my homework.

I worked as a Disney animator on several films. My focus was layout and gained invaluable experience in drawing. It was an amazing experience to see the collective work come together and presto - we had created a work that had not existed before. Being able to teach others and relay that experience is something I look forward to - to hopefully inspire as I have been inspired.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop for over ten years, and am very familiar with the shortcuts, capabilities, and interfaces for this tool. I have created paintings in Photoshop, along with importing photos, re-sizing, printing, resolution issues, etc. My work is currently has gallery representation, as well as online. Photoshop is one of the most powerful and widely used tools for the graphics industry, and is second nature once the initial learning curve is completed. My expertise will assist you in shortening the initial learning curve, and enable you to enjoy the creativity of this amazing tool.

Drawing

I have been drawing from age six; I have taught figure drawing at Art Center College of Design, as well as private tutoring in head drawing and basics of drawing. I also won an award in Amherst College for the best student work of art (self portrait). I am proficient in pencil, charcoal, conte, etc - all with an emphasis on keen observation and realism.

Graphic Design

I have a highly developed sense of design, using my abilities that have been honed and perfected while working in layout at Disney studios. I have used my skills in designing layout in application for logo and identity design while attending Art Center, and while I went into animation, the skillsets from design in layout overlap to the graphic design industry.

Painting

I have been painting from a young age, with an emphasis on portrait painting, the most difficult. I have painted commissioned portraits both in the USA and abroad. One of my portraits is in the gallery of the Mead Art Museum, Amherst Massachusetts. I am currently exhibiting my work at the Wild Coyote gallery in Big Bear, CA. My study at Art Center College of Design with emphasis on color and technique prepared the way for a career using oils, acrylics, and other painting mediums. I believe in a fundamental step by step approach to color, design, mixing, and observation, with an emphasis on accuracy and realism. Abstraction without fundamentals first is the easy way out.
