Artist Statement

Born and raised in suburban Maryland, I enjoy the freedom my computer allows me to take freelance work from all over the country. In 1992 I was offered a position on the original "Ren & Stimpy Show" at Spmc in Los Angeles. Other animation studios I've worked for have included Cartoon Network, Klasky Csupo, and Walt Disney TV Animation. I like the speed and precision programs like Adobe Photoshop can offer me, but that hasn't stopped me from working with traditional materials on a regular basis, including brush and ink, watercolor, colored pencils, and gouache. For many years I've been developing several original concepts and characters for a variety of venues and mediums. I did a great deal of illustration for the book Rough Draft: Pop Culture the Way It Almost Was...some examples of the Dr. Seuss work I did for the book can be found at the link below. Other illustration clients include The New York Press and several record covers for The Kung Fu Monkeys. While classic Hollywood cartoons have greatly influenced both my style and sensibilities, I readily admit to also being fascinated (and greatly inspired by) most popular culture, human behavior, children, color, the female form, absurdity, nonsense, fine art, music, and Coca-cola. Not necessarily in that order. ...
