Lets make what you need. I am a big advocate of showing skills in the areas that you are talented in. I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years. I've made every thing you can think of from newsletters to product design as well as run a print shop so I can help you learn the skills you need to create usable, print ready designs and teach you the tools needed to accomplish them. Whether you desire to create business cards and simple print items or you'd like to design complex brochures I can teach you the technical skills and get you familiar with the programs needed to take photos and edit them then lay them out in an organized and well designed format.

2D and 3D design-focused based on preference!

2D images are focused using InkScape and Gimp as its main software tools while 3D uses Blender to create 3-Dimensional Characters and levels.

With this course, a student is able to create 2D or 3D images that can be used for anything from Web Design, Applications, to Game Development!

While this course covers graphical design, programming and other concepts are required in order to achieve the full development of a program including games and web pages. To be able to completely create a full application please consult the tutor about the Computer Programming course and how it plays a critical role in this path.

Eric has experience with map animation that gives him insight into how to help me with my particular project and the specific help with animation that I need.
Rachael O.
My son is dyslexic and Eric is so patient with him. He's learning things I never thought would be possible and enjoying everything about his time with Eric! As a parent, working with Eric is very easy. He cares about his students and really wants them to enjoy their time with him. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher/ tutor!
JeM
Eric was helpful. I had a quick intro in to what I needed to know for my project and what tools would be most useful.

It would have been ideal, if I had known ahead of time that he was not well-versed on all features of Adobe Creative Cloud, but at least I know what is possible with his expertise.

Otherwise Eric conveyed a professional competence and was easy to talk to.
