About Rodney

For me, drawing is fun! And it's about imagination and exploration. I've found a lot of opportunities to share that fun with people through creating art. Tutoring allows me to share my love and drawing and creating art with others while helping them become more confident and expressive artists.

Professionally I'm primarily a cartoonist and storyteller, so those are the areas I deal with as a tutor most often. But to be a good cartoonist, you've also got to have strong regular drawing skills. I've had the opportunity to learn from some really talented artists over my life who showed me ways to enhance and develop my talents. And I'd like to do the same for others.

I've been a professional illustrator and graphic artist for more than a decade. I've worked on a variety of projects from book illustrations to comic strips to advertising for both individuals and businesses. With over eight years of study in studio and commercial art, I have a strong background in traditional drawing as well as stylized and cartoon art.

If you're interested in drawing cartoons or fun stuff, or just interested in sitting down and relaxing with a sketchbook, I'd like the opportunity to help you have fun. Not only is creating art is a great way to sharpen your imagination, it's also a great hobby. Let's sharpen our pencils!

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 worked professionally as a graphic designer for more than 15 years, during which I was Art Director of three national trade magazines and three mail order catalogs. In addition to my work in publication design, I have created advertising and marketing materials for businesses. As an early adopter of InDesign, I've worked in every version since version 1.0.

Drawing

I have two bachelors degrees in art, one in studio art from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the other in Illustration from the Ringling College of Art and Design. Professionally, I have created illustration work for direct mail campaigns, children's book projects, and comics. Additionally I have worked on artwork for animation and mobile apps.

I have tutored previously in college as a writing tutor, so I am experienced working with students.
