New teaching gig

You may know that most of my work is as a freelance illustrator, but I always try to supplement it with a regular paycheck by teaching. As an adjunct or part-time instructor, I never know from semester to semester what I will get, if anything. This fall, I found out at the last minute about an opening at the College of Marin. They did what they call an emergency hire and I am now teaching a design class, focusing on Illustrator and Photoshop. Also, I was offered Photoshop imaging classes at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, the same ones I taught last year. This means that I can depend on at least some money each month.

You may have noticed that my posts have been very infrequent for the past few months. I have been really busy with the end of summer classes and other very big, high-pressure projects. I'm on one of those right now. But I do have a new tutorial planned next month on a personal painting I did recently.
