About Xavier

I have a great passion and natural talent in the arts and for teaching. I have always gravitated to illustration and have found that I have a knack for computers and technology. This interest has led me to the field of graphic design. I have taught in classrooms, workshops, 1-on-1 sessions, collaborated with college teachers and have given talks and lectures about design and illustration. I have taken formal classes at the Art Institute of Boston and have professional experience with the Adobe Creative Suites including Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.

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 InDesign

I have been using Adobe InDesign just over 10 years now. I use this application for page layouts, cover letters, resumes, stationaries, posters, business cards and other real world application scenarios.

Adobe InDesign was created as a pagination program for typesetters, authors, magazine editors, etc. However, it has become a graphic designer's best tool. This program allows great flexibility and the freedom to create many business collateral that is very helpful.

On the print side of things, this program can give you the best type of preparation tactics for print production. Pre-flighting, exporting and packaging files that will be sent for print will have to be set up correctly or files will not come out the way to be desired. This is a vital component of this program and should be studied meticulously.

Drawing

I have taken formal illustration classes at the Art Institute of Boston. I can forward 3-5 samples I am confident of to prove my knowledge and advanced comprehension. As a great illustrator, I demonstrate professional rendering, sophisticated strokes, contrast and other compelling facets of a great image.

Painting

I have taken formal painting classes at the Art Institute of Boston. I can forward 3-5 samples i am confident of to prove my knowledge and advanced comprehension.Great painters demonstrate professional application of pigment, atmospheric perspective proper value and gradations.

In addition, when using color a knowledge of compliments, split compliments and analogous colors is very important. Knowing how to use color can both positively and negatively impact the perspective of your target audience.

When using monochromatic color methods, a total different approach is necessary. When using monochrome, a study and an understanding of value and light is important to the success of this particular type of painting.
