"Art is a lie, which reveals the truth." Picasso

"I am a realistic,narrative illustrator, which plainly stated, means that I tell stories with pictures. I have painted covers for nearly every major publisher.I have paintings in the permanent collections of the USAF Art Collection, NASA and The Museum of American Illustration. My artwork has been exhibited at the White House,the Capitol, the Pentagon, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery ,The New York Historical Society Museum , The Historical Foundation of Brévands,France and the Abraham Lincoln Home and Presidential Library in Springfield, Illinois. I have have created well over 2000 stamps for some 40 separate nations.I have illustrated more than a dozen children's books, and have painted the portraits of Royals,Political Leaders, celebrated individuals from Nobel Laureates to film stars. I have had twenty eight designs selected for minting by the United States Mint,including thirteen Congressional Gold Medals. I take pride in covering everything from the Pope to Popeye.Everything under the sun and beyond has a facinating story that I love to tell with images." Since April of 2005 when THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS designated Joel as a MASTER DESIGNER to create coins and medals for THE UNITED STATES MINT, 38 of his designs have been selected for minting.
