I wanted to be an illustrator since I was around 12 and saw a number of images from Parrish, Rockwell and Leyendecker, among others, who still influence me. Illustration was once as respected as great fine art in its appeal to the public and at its peak the level of quality was unmatched. If you are serious about the study of great drawing and enjoy rendering realism then there is always room for more good illustrators to help bring back a period of quality that is beginning to take shape in the market again. Here are a number of my recent jobs and a few sample pieces. Let me know what you think and if you are a student I enjoy teaching and giving what help I can. Also check out my DEMO pages for techniques and ideas.
