About the Illustration:

My work has appeared in both editorial and commercial markets with a style geared towards the delicate play of innocence and irony. I like to tell a story through gentle nuances, whether that be through cartoon or more serious and realistic pieces. The main mediums I work in are digital (both vector and raster), acrylic, pen and ink, and colored pencil - generally some combination of one or all of these.


My influences could be anything from the classic renaissance masters to the torn edge of a paper bag, depending on the day, but here are some of the great people I've idolized throughout my career:

 

Dr. Suess - Who doesn't love this man?
Arnold Lobel - Frog and Toad books, Mouse Soup, Grasshopper on the Road, countless others
Rembrandt - Great master of light and shadow, champion of the downtrodden
Alphonse Mucha - Art Nouveau genius
N. C. Wyeth - Legendary visual storyteller and children's book artist
Norman Rockwell - His rich work evokes the beauty and innocence of everyday life
Bill Watterson - He illustrated my childhood through Calvin and Hobbes
Charles Schultz - Showed us how none of us ever really grew up
Edmund Dulac - Incredible and evocative artistry
Salvador Dali - Wild and crazy pioneer of tapping the dreamstate in art
Gustav Klimt - Blended pattern and painting like milk and water
