I can not answer to the fullest about oil painting, because I don't oil paint. But I do know the material and what is a good oil paint, and the types of brushes to use as well as types of canvas. I am very capable of answering just about any questions relating to strip, gag, and illustration cartooning, scripting for graphic novels and comic books, (but I admit that I can not draw the 'action figure,' as they do now, but I know what is correct, and what isn't in human and animal anatomy.

I can show easy methods of drawing objects and the human figure from imagination or from life study, especially drawing the characteristics of a particular person with emphasis on the 3 - D form. Im "Old School" so dont ask me about computer assisted drawing.I can help with Perspective and choosing suitable materials to tackle a subject or a theme with the addition of introducing a humourous approach or message .This might be useful for those entering Cartoon competitions or wishing to send someone a special event birthday card etc. Drawing elipses as in bottles, glasses ,still life objects etc are easy for me to expain. I can show how to develop a sketch into a sculpture using wire or a welded steel frame / armature.

Please don't ask me about identifying artists of art you might own, or about appraising art you own! You need to have an art appraiser look at your art. I've worked professionally as an illustrator for over 25 years. I've illustrated numerous children's books, classroom games, textbook/workbooks, posters and educational materials. I've also designed extensively for silk screen production. My designs have been printed primarily for the children's retail market, in stores as diverse as Bloomingdales to Montgomery Ward. Publications my work has appeared in such noteworthy publications as Highlights for Children, Scholastic Magazine, and the New York Times. Publishers I have worked with include McGraw Hill, North Atlantic Books, Hachai Publishing and MacMillan UK to name a few
