Subjects

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

Adobe Illustrator

In my career, spanning over 30 years, I have used Adobe Illustrator for a very wide range of design applications from posters and fliers to book covers and billboards. I have used Illustrator for product design by employing the precision drafting capabilities that allow for creation of blueprints and map cartography. I use Illustrator to draft exportable files for computer-guided cutting and milling operations. In the fashion industry, I employ Illustrator to create vivid patterns for fabrics and appliques. And I often use Adobe Illustrator for Fine Art projects, Web Design Content, and for Book Illustrations as well.

I use Lightroom Classic to organize, process and edit not only digital photos, but digital artwork and web assets. I help professional photographers as well as hobbyists to set up catalogs and arrange their photos into easily searchable catalogs.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop professionally for over 25 years, for everything from print publications, web content, fine art and illustrations. I have used it to create repeating patterns for textiles, logos and mascots for T-shirts and for industrial design prototyping. Photoshop is a fascinating and versatile program that goes far beyond standard photo editing, at which it excells.

Knowledgeable and quick

Amazing teacher! Patient and understands what my needs are for my business. I'm not the best with computers so he really takes the time and teaches me everything I need to know in a way that I am able to remember and catch on right away.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

He taught me the ins and outs of photoshop. Many tricks and shortcuts of the program. We were working on a specific project that I needed to get done by Christmas. He answered any question I had to work and provided extremely useful solutions to my issues..

Cuts to the chase

As an Etsy seller, I had a very specific lesson requirement- how to change the color of an existing item I make to another color I offer without actually having to make it again? We've all seen this done online, where someone is wearing something in green but by clicking an option you can see them wearing it in blue. David was great with Photoshop tools and conducted the lesson with me sharing MY screen using MY files, so that at the end I was able to meaningfully apply these specific skills. Great instructor; patient and knowledgeable.

Excellent Knowledge and teaching skills

David is great. I am a tshirt designer and he is helping me sharpen my skills. In Photoshop delete background and editing. Smudge tool use and layering and the magic wand. In Illustrator he is teaching me tracing!

Ron, 8 lessons with David

David and I worked on a photo collage of a garden that I am designing. He provided lots of helpful tips for making the render look more lifelike and interesting. I will definitely do another session with him!

David C is quite knowledgeable

David C is quite knowledgeable in Photoshop and Medibang Paint. He was also very flexible and understanding when we had to make last minute changes to the schedule. I hired David to help my 14 year old daughter with her submissions to CSSSA. He gave her many tips on how to make her artwork "pop" and just look better altogether. He was very positive and encouraging and also wrote her a recommendation for the program. Without David's help, I'm not sure if my daughter would've gotten into this highly competitive program. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

great experience!

David took my questions and knew exactly where to guide and teach. He tapped in pretty instantly on where I needed guidance, and simplified something I found challenging.
