About

I've been working in book illustration, comic books, animation and film for over 30 years. This portfolio is all about my first love in art, traditional black and white illustration utilizing pencil, pen, brush and ink. For some of this work I've also used disposable pens and brushes which have come a long way in the last few years! Storytelling either as continuity from panel to panel or within a single illustration is very important to me as well. Much of the work here was subsequently colored for publication.
New additions to my portfolio include a few examples of my work colored!
