The Importance of Learning from a Working Professional
Not only am I an instructor and coach but I’m also a working professional.
Welcome to BobTeachesArt.com. I’ve been illustrating professionally for the past 25 years. My art has appeared in close to 300 books and in hundreds of logos all over the world. I have been working with the Adobe programs for almost as long as they have been available. My lessons plans don’t come from a book or a manual. The techniques I teach are the same I use for my own business on a daily basis.
A consummate illustrator with over 3 decades of experience, Bob's list of credentials is pretty darn impressive. His work has been featured in over 250 children’s books so far and he's not showing any sign of slowing down.
Coupled with his extensive design and illustration background, Bob is also a part time instructor at Wake Technical Community College where he teaches Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign; programs he uses on a daily basis to create the very art that he teaches to students.
