About Robert

I have been teaching digital and traditional art, design, and animation on the university level since 2002 and currently teaches for Rider University, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online, Union County College, and the New Road School of Somerset. I have been a freelance illustrator and designer for over 35 years. The digital courses I teach cover the technical aspect of learning the software and the aesthetic aspect of creating communicative, engaging, and appealing art and design.

I am the recipient of a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Design Arts Fellowship in Illustration. My work has been included in exhibitions of the Society of Illustrators of New York, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, the Art Directors Club of Philadelphia, and the Art Directors Club of New Jersey. My work have also been included in the Graphis Annual, Print’s Regional Design Annual and in several books about Adobe Illustrator. I am also a musician and I have combined my visual art skills and musical skills through the medium of computer animation. My animation work has been exhibited at the Artist Visions 2011 Film Festival, the DIGit 2010 Digital Media Exposition, and the 2008 Digital Artists Show.

I have been creating digital art and design professionally since 1988 and have been teaching art, design, and animation on the computer platform since 2002. I bring my professional experience to the classroom and to my tutoring. I have always found computer software easy and fun to learn and I convey my knowledge and enjoyment to my students.

Creating art, design and animation is my idea of fun. Both the process of creation and the completion of a project are highly rewarding and an emotional thrill. I seek to instill this enthusiasm for art in my students. In my career I have created the logo for the movie Conan The Barbarian, book covers for the biographies of Buddy Holly and of Hank Williams, covers for magazines from Heavy Metal to Student Lawyer, etc. Art is a passion for me.

If you start off with great ideas you usually cannot go wrong, however one must develop the skills to bring your ideas to fruition. My experience and knowledge will be helpful in improving your skills and in enhancing your creativity. Please contact me if you are ready to have fun creating art, design or animation.
