Professional comic artist in Glasgow gives lessons in how to draw comics

Methodology

I'm a professional comic artist and illustrator with 10 years experience. I have taught workshops and classes on how to draw with adults and young people for 6 years. My belief is that everyone can learn how to use art to tell a story, regardless of skill level.

If you're a beginner and want to get better, I can give you an understanding of the foundations of art and how to apply storytelling to comics. If you're at intermediate or above, I can help you to improve your skills to take you to a professional level, including how to work with writers and scripts, how to nail perspective, posing and anatomy and how to set up your pages in a dynamic and exciting way.

I teach by doing - I will show you how I work, and help you to break down the choices I make and why - and I'll get you to do the same. You'll work on comic pages from a brand new script and together we'll work out the best approach.

I'll do individual lessons on all aspects of illustration that will combine to produce a short comic strip. My teaching method varies depending on YOUR style of learning - what works for you.

Background

I've been drawing comics for 10 years and in that time I've worked with a vast number of writers in a variety of genres. I've been a workshop facilitator for 6 years and have given lessons to adults, young people, older people, adults with learning difficulties and more.

I have experience of creating bespoke lesson plans that make sure you can learn in the style you prefer. I've also given talks on making comics.

Garry's CV

Illustrator, blogger and web developer
Freelance

April 2011 - Present


As a freelancer, I've enjoyed working with many clients and participant groups. I've handled commissions and briefs from clients for a wide variety of artwork including comic books, nightclub and band posters, book covers and the like.

My latest work is 'Tomorrow', published by BHP Comics and written by Jack Lothian (Shameless, Ashes to Ashes, Teachers). I have been nominated in four categories for SICBA awards (Scottish Independent Comic Book Alliance).

I am adept in traditional arts as well as digital and can use Photoshop and Illustrator to expert level. I also have experience of preparing for print and prepress.

I write articles and SEO content for online blogs, including for a well-known personal injury compensation claim organisation, and a number of review and news sites including Big Comic Page, Geek Chocolate and Meaws.

As a web developer, I currently manage two Wordpress.org hosted sites for clients and a develop SEO and social media strategies for them. I am adept in using Yoast SEO.

I also ran a project helping young LGBT people through the arts which was funded through Big Lottery. Other community workshops have included working with elderly people, young people and people with disabilities. I was responsible for managing the projects, funding applications, grant maintenance, administration, budgeting and accounts and data protection compliance.
