About James

I extended my college graduation by one semester to take advantage of the new computer lab that our art department had just established. It was the best choice I made in my education. In that lab, I was introduced to the Mac and Adobe Illustrator. I have been using both ever since in my graphic design and illustration career.

As you probably can guess, I believe in learning and throughout my 23 years of working as artist, I've learned a great many things: from Illustrator to Photoshop, Final Cut Pro to Maya. I now have a large body of graphics and media knowledge that all began because I liked to draw. A good portion of that knowledge can come from manuals or online tutorials, but sometimes having someone who has done the work at one’s disposal is a valuable resource. I hope that I can become that resource for you.

I have worked in various art-related jobs and have had the pleasure to provide instructions to coworkers on using Illustrator, since that is the software I use most. I've been told that what they were able to get from me made all the difference to further their careers. I strive to make instruction as simple as possible and show practical ways to use the software. I make sure that any questions asked are answered.

I try to be as flexible with my time as possible and will work with the student in whatever arrangements are most convenient for study. While I am willing to travel, those expenses will be factored into my billing on top of the normal tutoring rate. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, but I will work to accommodate schedule changes.

I will gladly answer any questions you may have, so feel free to ask! I appreciate your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Drawing

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in illustration. I have designed packaging that required creating original drawings of Marvel comic characters. I also created storyboards for corporate video projects.

Graphic Design

My work background involves packaging design and graphic overlays for video edits. The work I have done requires knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, which are the primary tools of graphic design. I have also done layouts for one-sheet advertisements and instruction sheets.
