Welcome to my online commercial art portfolio website. I was one of those kids in school that was called, “artistic.” At a very young age I started drawing rockets, tanks, jets, maps, machines, and cars. Yes, LOTS of cars.
With an excellent education in mechanical drawing I began my work experience as a draftsman and a technical illustrator. In the mid-'70s, I started my long career in automotive magazine illustration and writing. By the late ‘70s I recognized that I needed more illustration skills, so I attended Philadelphia College of Art night school for Illustration and began to build up my portfolio.
From 1982 to 1992, I worked on my own as a freelance commercial artist while continuing my car magazine work. One of my best clients became my eventual employer. In 1992, I was hired on as a designer for Tyco Toys and spent the next 9 years learning the toy business and having a lot of fun.
Since 2001, I have been back in the freelance game and I'm still in the magazine business with my 12-year old monthly column for Vette Magazine titled, "The Illustrated Corvette Series." But a funny thing happened along the way. My portfolio went from being a large leather binder with clear plastic sleeves that I had to carry around, to a digital, electronic portfolio available for the entire planet to see.
Now that's something I never would have imagined back in 1972!
