Illustrations

My award-winning book and magazine illustrations have been seen in print and online since 1990. I use a variety of media — watercolor, gouache, casein, acrylic, colored pencils, graphite, ink, and scratchboard. My preferred color palettes are taken from the pulp illustrations of 1930’s as I feel that range of colors is most evocative of the pulp genre.

For the black and white pieces, my line work is similar to Edd Cartier’s although at times I also emulate the styles of others, such as Virgil Finlay. I am also heavily influenced by the work of Golden Age children’s book illustrator, William Heath Robinson.
