Subjects

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

Adobe Illustrator

I have been using Illustrator since version 88. I use it to further enhance my illustrations and character cartoons as well as designing ads and logos for various customers.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop and Indesign primarily in the prepress industry since the programs have been around. I have also used Photoshop in a design capacity as a freelance graphic artist and retouching photos in the fashion industry (if hired I will clarify the difference). I am experienced with InDesign mostly in the capacity of advertising and prepress as a layout tool, not in book creation. But I know more than enough to teach the basics on both.
Drawing

Drawing

I have an Associate's Degree in Commercial Art from Vesper George School of Commercial Art. I have been actively illustrating, drawing, and cartooning as a hobby and freelance artist for many years, and can produce samples upon request.

Desktop Publishing,

Desktop Publishing

I have been in the desktop publishing industry since before computers. I served my apprenticeship in the ITU at Typograhic House of Boston, where I also learned my craft on computers. Since I have been actively involved and employed in a variety of Desktop Publishing areas, from working in various Print shops to being an Application Support Technician for Creo/Scitex. I am well versed in a variety of platforms: Mac, PC as well as Unix. I am experienced in many Desktop Publishing programs including (but not limited to) the latest Adobe Creative Suite.
Macintosh

Macintosh

Because of my career in Desktop Publishing, I was exposed to the Macintosh and owned one before owning any type of personal computer was something anyone regularly considered. My first Mac was an SI with 8 megs of Disk space running OS 6, and I have been working on them ever since.
