Jerry Shippee

I have been working as a professional cartoonist/illustrator for the past 20 years, and have been teaching my craft to school-aged students for nearly that long. Much of my time has been spent working with sequential story-telling, and caricature. These have been expressed through newspaper comic strips, magazine and book illustrations, and a large number of private clients. I use my experience in the field to educate my students in the "commercial" arts, and how those arts can provide a vocation. 

My education consists of attending The Art Instruction school (Minn., Minn.) for cartooning and illustration, an apprenticeship with internationally syndicated cartoonist, Guy Gilchrist, as well as training with world renowned caricaturist, Tom Richmond. I hold an AFA, and have thousands of experience hours (as well as works).      My fees listed reflect the range of an hourly rate, and depend on the service rendered:Instructional: $30/hrlive performance: $100/hr
