About Curt

Hi. My name is Curt. I'm a professional freelance illustrator with tons of experience in Photoshop and Illustrator. I've been using those programs for around 8 years and professionally for 3. I'm also skilled in other Adobe software as well as traditional drawing.

I earned my BFA from The Art Institute of Portland in 21012. My main focus in college was cartoons and comics. I enjoy teaching about sequential art like animation and story boarding. I can help you learn the tools you need to be a professional designer, as well as help you with your foundation skills.

I can teach you how to use the programs and how to achieve the look you want by using the tools. I can help strengthen your drawing and design skills through example and critique. Every session with me will be as fun and educational as possible.

Background Check: Passed

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.

Adobe Illustrator

While attending the Art Institute of Portland I used Adobe Illustrator quite a bit. As a freelance illustrator I use it even more. I have been using Adobe Illustrator since the first CS version. I always keep up to date on the latest versions, new tools, tricks and tips.

Adobe Lightroom

As a freelancer I often take photo editing and processing jobs. For the most part I've used Photoshop, but lately found Lightroom to be much easier for simpler edits. I have edited and enhanced many photos with Lightroom.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is my designer Swiss Army knife. I have used it for everything from graphic design, comics, and even motion graphics and video. I've even used it to texture and paint 3D objects. I have been using PS for a long time and if there's something I don't happen to know about it I know how to learn it.

Drawing

I graduated from the Art Institute of Portland with a BFA in media arts and animation. My primary study was on traditional 2D animation, storyboard for film and animation, and comics/sequential art.

I have completed many life drawing, perspective and figure drawing classes as well as many character design, storyboarding, and concept design class.

I've been drawing professionally since graduation in 2012.

General Computer

As an art student I was required to take a general computer science class. I have been using computers since elementary school. I understand them more than the average person and can help you understand them better as well.

Graphic Design

As a freelance illustrator I do many things. Besides simply drawing for clients I also do graphic design. This differs from illustration in that it combines illustration, text and images to communicate some sort of idea.

While earning my BFA from the Art Institute of Portland I took many design classes, but it wasn't until after I graduated that I actually began creating "graphic design."

I have created infographics, logos, motion graphics, brochures, banners, and ads for many clients.
