Comics and Cartooning tutoring from a working artist with 25+ years experience.

Methodology

I got into teaching at first to supplement my income, but find I enjoy the work sometimes more than making art! It's been a pleasure to share my experience and knowledge, and make a point of teaching the students I have rather than a fixed curriculum. I focus on what they need to overcome hurdles and try to find ways that will help them best overcome hurdles. If they are willing to do the work, i'm fairly confident I can help anyone improve their art.

Background

Professional cartoonist and Illustrator, with 5 years experience teaching art at a private college. I've also worked in Animation as a designer, as an art director for print, self published graphic novels, worked freelance for Marvel and DC comics, and more!

Max's Resume

Freelance Illustrator, Designer & Comic Artist.
Company NameSalgood Sam dot com
Dates EmployedSep 1988 – Present
Employment Duration30 yrs 5 mos
LocationMontreal and Toronto.

Since the late 80's, in my teens, I've worked as a freelance artist, making my living almost entirely with my pens, pencils and wits. At this time i enjoy doing a variety of illustration and narrative work, and I'm always available for commissions for magazines, advertising and private customers.

In addition I've designed Logos, Posters, Web pages and other assorted bits of Graphic work. I also have a fair bit of experience as a Designer for Animation, props locations and characters, and enjoy that work quite a bit as well.

Publisher
Company NameSpilt Ink Publishing
Dates EmployedJan 2000 – Present
Employment Duration19 yrs 1 mo
LocationMontreal, Canada Area
A boutique imprint I started and maintain to publish my independent comics work in print and online.

Under it's banner I've published and maintain several websites, and now five comics albums including my 2014 graphic novel Dream Life.

Art & Comics Teacher
Company NameSyn Studio : École d'art - Art School
Dates EmployedOct 2013 – Present
Employment Duration5 yrs 4 mos
LocationMontreal, Canada Area
I teach three regular courses at Syn, Dynamic Drawing, A intermediate drawing class targeting gesture drawing, design and refining all the skills required to generate truly dynamic art. Making Comics 101, and Intro to Cartooning, courses that focus on the narrative mechanics of comics art, and the drawing techniques native to cartooning respectively.

For all three courses I created the curriculums, and most of the course material myself. I'm pleased to brag my student survey ratings are consistently between 90 and 99%!

It was a bit of a surprise to me, but i've discovered I might just like teaching even more than freelancing as an artist! It brings me a lot of pleasure to help people discover a productive path in learning art. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges it presents and sharing my own experience.

And in addition to deepening my own understanding of my artistic process, I feel it's done wonders for my communication skills generally.

You'll find my full CV on LinkedIn here, I keep it updated regularly.
