My interests in cartooning was preceded by my love for music and prehistoric animals. When art came along I started winning drawing awards from kindergarten through college, ad beyond. Cartooning and illustration was sparked by Remington, Darley, Rockwel (among others) on one end. Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, or cartoons on cereal boxes, in other words anything figurative in commercial art.
First published piece was in the 6th grade. Regular work came during Jr. high through high school making posters followed by local, valley publications that I drew cartoons for. I also am an avid student of the history of commercial art. And some of its most pertinent points are not to be found in books on the subject.
In recent years educational book illustration, and some cartooning, has come my way. Yet, I still prefer work with some humor and more design that tightly realistic work. Portraits of people whose works I enjoy, are also something that inspires me.
I worked at Disney's Animation Research Library until this spring and totally enjoyed it!
My subjects, more than my talent, has what has gotten me barred from some publications. Hence where to find my commentary art has often in independent publications where little or no money is paid. The beauty of line, flatness, negative space, and shape are hallmarks of the art.
Sort of conspiracy art. Art inspired, in part by, art neuvo, art deco, Japanese prints anything else flat and linear.
Though conservative, my intention is to put forth ideas that are based on observations of human conditions and now and then, to serve as warnings when I see something that threatens freedom and morality. Who know. The next entry may have something very different to say about me. God is good.
