I have been working as an illustrator since 1983 when I took my first assignment for my local newspaper in Erie, Pennsylvania. Since that time I have had the opportunity to work with some great folks over the years in both advertising and publishing. I create work for both the editorial market as well as the children's market. My approach for each varies but the ultimate goal remains the same, to tell a good story and to engage the viewer.
Favorite tools include pen, ink, watercolor, acrylic, oils and of course the good ol' 3B pencil. I live in Wilmington, North Carolina with my wife, daughter and a very curious pit bull name Mosie. When not drawing or painting I play guitar, get together with friends, take walks, enjoy bocce and other physical activities which won't lead to me breaking any bones.
Some folks I have worked with over the years:
The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Playboy, Atlantic Monthly, Houghton Mifflin, Arthur Levine Books, Cricket, Penguin Putnam, The International Herald Tribune, Little Brown, The Washington Post, Scholastic, NPR, New Mobility Magazine and The Chicago Tribune to name a few.
