Outside of my illustration work I enjoy the honor of teaching in the illustration department at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. It's really nice to pass along the borrowed knowledge I received as a student to new and passionate artists just finding themselves and honing their craft. I work hard at making students push themselves to create work that they can be proud of and hopefully, beyond the technical focus of the class, show a bit of their opinion and personality in their drawings.
I don't always get too much time to draw in class since I like to walk around and work with the students one-on-one but, when I do take a couple minutes, it's so hard to tear myself away from the paper. I've always loved clothed figure drawing and I hope I can pass that passion off to my students. As for this semester I have an amazing group that I'm sure will make names for themselves in all their endeavors.
These drawings are anywhere from 2-10 minutes in length and, in most cases, a little unfinished, something I really like about them. They serve different purposes and are always fun to do, even when they're really awful. Cheers all!
