Pictoral, or book, illustration is my focus. Here are a few samples indicative of my range of style. Most are published, a few are just for funsies.
As an illustrator, I get great artistic fulfillment in bringing children's books to life. Growing up, I always enjoyed the books with the best pictures. To this day, I believe a good illustration will tell the story as much as the text.
I've worked with many self-published authors in my career. There is a pureness, a freshness, in working directly with the author of the story that otherwise might be distilled. If you are one of these independent writers, and you have a story you'd like illustrated, contact me and I'll try to help visualize your creation.
Of course, if you're an Editor or Art Director or some such creative type, I would enjoy working with you just as well. I play no favorites when it comes to making art!
Here are some pieces that illustrate various opinions, viewpoints, and stances.
Love 'em or hate 'em, everybody's got an opinion, even artists!
The bulk of my design work is logo generation. A rebel part of my illustrator brain actually enjoys creating a visual identity for clients. Logos and letterhead suites are a welcome break when I want to create on a different level.
