About Jeremiah

My names Jeremiah and I'm an Illustrator & Educator living in New York. In the past I've produced Children's Book's & CD's, Characters, Cartoons, and Logo's for many clients small and large. A few of my clients include The Christmas Tree Shops Inc., Picmonic, Edge Brewing, and the Red Zebra Project. As an Artist, my goal is to be an effective visual problem solver focused on producing artwork in the vein of narrative story-telling. I create traditional and digital artwork that engages a wide range of audiences from Children to Young Adults.

As an Educator I approach teaching students with constructive criticism. I help students identify strengths and weaknesses in order to help them become aware of their abilities as visual problem solvers and creative individuals. I teach fundamentals of drawing and painting in traditional and digital formats using the mechanics of Composition, Color theory, Value, Anatomy, and Identity. Overall I focus on a students visual growth so they can believe in what they're doing by seeing tangible results of progression in their skills. My philosophy is that teaching and creating require patience and empathy with your subjects so it's important to give individual attention to students in order to fulfill their needs an desires.

Drawing

I have over 10 years of experience professionally drawing in the communication arts field. I developed character drawing and cartooning as a young adult and perfected my drafting abilities in architectural and figure drawing after formal education in College. I draw and render in 2-Dimensional format for a living and specialize in figure drawing, still life, landscape, memory drawing, and drawing from reference material. I specialize in usage and handling of dry media such as graphite pencil, charcoal, and wet media like ink and nib.

Graphic Design

Along with my BFA in Illustration from Montserrat College of Art, I also received my teacher's certificate in Art Education where I hope to pursue my passion as a visual problem-solver specializing in narrative based storytelling. I have over 7 years experience individually tutoring, mentoring, and personally coaching undergraduate students focused toward higher education and guidance in the world of Visual Art. With 7 years of as a Professional freelancer I'm confident in my natural teaching facilities to be an effective Tutor in the following forms of visual storytelling like Background development, Character Design, Logo Design, Graphic Design, Typography. Drawing, and Painting.

Painting

Since I was 17 years of age I've been painting with water and oil-based paint such as Acrylics, Oils, Watercolor, Latex, Egg & Honey Tempura, and Stucco. I've recently started painting for Overall Murals in New York where my work is seen by thousands of people each day. After years of formal education in painting at school, I've learned a method of both 'search', and painting shapes of color to arrive at the highlight of an eye from searching up from a silhouette. Photo reference has become instrumental in achieving believable and realistic painting for many illustrators and this is my chosen form of instructing the building blocks of color in a simple format.
