When you hear hoofbeats, think of a zebra - Sufi saying

I illustrate because it has become part of my identity, My strengths are my ability to interpret and translate the conceptual into reality through drawing or painting for the purpose of solving a clients problems. I have instructed design drawing, drawing for illustrators, color and 2D design at various periods at OCAD (The Ontario College of Art and Design) but my great love is illustration which has rewarded me with the experience of producing good work and drawers full of cherished, dusty awards. The sincerest accolade was a letter from a German art student who proclaimed I was the worlds greatest illustrator. My mother agreed. As an Illustrator my primary medium is acrylic but I also produce work in pen, ink and water color wash as well as pencil and gouache. During my career I have worked for major publications such as Time, Newsweek, Sports illustrated and many advertising agencies. In the past year I was honored to have my illustration work be selected as part of the Society of Illustrators travelling exhibition. I enjoy my work and if my work appeals to you and if my styles which embrace an eclectic mix of photorealism, surrealism, fantasy and spiced with humorous caricature suits your purposes then lets talk about your project.
